If I understand, you mean to calculate deviations for each individual
'chunk' of each transition & then aggregate the results? This is what
I'd been thinking about, but is there a sensible manner within R to
achieve this, or is it something for which it would be easier to
preprocess the data in an external tool? Is there some way to subset the
data such that I can work over just contiguous 'chunks'?
