Ask for new feature: a pre-decoder mechanism for 'variables' and 'stdev' ?
If I'm understanding 'pre-decoder stage' correctly, maybe one of these is relevant:

Sqlite now supports CTEs (WITH clause) which may help you concisely define a function.    [](https://www.sqlite.org/lang_with.html)

For basic statistics functions, note the contribution of extension-functions.c at   [](https://sqlite.org/contrib/)   

Should you be using the CLI (command line interface utility program), it does indeed support named parameters.
