Good point, Mike. But this only computes the reliabiltiy coefficient. It
doesn't provide a significance level. Gordon clearly already had Alpha,
since his reviewer was calling him on it. :-) Unfortunately, what is an
'acceptable' Cronbach's alpha tends to change from psychometrics to
to biometrics to you name it...
