[Rasch] Rasch to G-theory

The variances needed to compute a Rasch-based equivalent to a 
Generalizability Coefficient (G) are in Facets Tables 5 and 7.

My apologies that the "explained variance" computations at 
www.winsteps.com/facetman/table5.htm do not show the last step in the 
computation. It is:

G = (Explained variance% by target facet) / 100

Please verify this value of G makes sense for your data. A more specific 
Generalizability Coefficient may be more meaningful to your audience. 
Variance terms similar to 
page 20 can be extracted from Facets output. These can be used to compute a 
more focused Generalizability Coefficient.
