    I believe Jim Lux had previously pointed out  that although many digital 
"true RMS" multimeters actually "do the math", some  top-notch lab equipment 
actually measures the temperature rise in an precision  resistor. Maybe this 
would be easier to implement?
    Much info on RMS measurements in the  archives.
