How to add MA to Implied Volatility Indicator?

This should be easy, as I recall, but how does one add a moving average to the Implied Volatility Indicator, which is simply:

declare lower;
declare hide_on_intraday;

plot ImpVol = IMP_VOLATILITY();

It would be nice to have input length options, and the maybe two MA's, for cross-over identification...

Thanks much.

I can polish this up tomorrow as I'm on my ipad right now, but here's the basics...

Declare Lower;

Input ma1Length = 20;
Input ma2Length = 50;

Def iv = imp_Volatility();
Def iv1Sma = simpleMovingAvg(iv, ma1Length);
Def iv2Sma = simpleMovingAvg(iv, ma2Length);

Plot impV = iv;
Plot iv1Ma = iv1Sma;
Plot iv2Ma = iv2Sma;
