comment Can a function be made to accept a variable amount of inputs?
+1 Your method is much cleaner than mine. It is good to know about Check too.

comment Wagner's trick to monitor FindRoot no longer works in Mathematica version 8
Evaluated is not listed as one of the options for FindRoot in the documentation. What does it do?

comment Implementing Central Symmetry
By central symmetry, do you mean point reflection? If that is the case, you can use ScalingTransform[{-1,-1,-1},{p1,p2,p3}]. This will reflect your graphics object about the point $(p1,p2,p3)$. I assume you plan to use it for 3-dimensional graphics object.

@Mr.Wizard I mixed up two ideas when I wrote up the answer. The original function does not actually require the use of BlankSequence. In fact, it fails if I evaluate datasetAverage[{1,2,3},{4,5,6}].

Replaced BlankSequence with Blank in the definition of datasetAverage

You may want to wait for other answers before accepting. I am sure the regulars here can offer more refined answers.

@RHall I used the BlankSequence pattern, which stands for any sequence of one or more expressions. So now I can feed in a sequence of datasets.

comment Leave expression tree formatting the same when a replacement rule is applied
I had to look up Release on the documentation. Old habits die hard?

comment Is there a clean way to extract the subspaces invariant under a list of matrices?
@DanielLichtblau According to his first comment, he wants to enumerate all such subspaces.

comment How to make the suggestion box appear?
Did you evaluate the last piece of code in Mathematica 7, or is there a way to tell Mathematica to pretend it is version 7?
