Much common statistical software uses the name `mean` rather than `average` for the function that returns a arithmetic mean of a collection of numbers (eg, STATA, R, Mathematica). To make using LibreOffice Calc easier for users of other statistical software, I propose adding an alias `mean` for the `average` function. In this way, users could type either `mean()` or `average()` for the same results.

Sounds reasonable since in bug 86645 harmean() and geomean() is requested not haravg(). There is also a confusion with pivot table labels in bug 71111.
