Isn't "average RMS" a redundancy?

Paul Licameli
There are several places in Contrast.cpp contaning the string "Average RMS" which can appear in the results in the dialog, or in exported files.

But "average" is another word for "mean" which is the M in RMS.

Should it simply be "RMS" ?

Yes it should be "RMS" rather than "Average RMS".

No strong objections heard, so I have changed it.
