The dem_mosaic utility in the NASA Ames Stereo Pipeline suite of tools does exactly what you want.  It was developed to efficiently generate large seamless mosaics from 1000s of raster inputs.  The user can select from several options for output mosaic values (weighted average, median, first, last, stddev, count, etc.).  I recommend that you start with the default weighted average option.  Documentation, binaries (Linux and OSX), and source code are available here: https://ti.arc.nasa.gov/tech/asr/intelligent-robotics/ngt/stereo/.

Given a large set of overlapping images, I want to mosaic using the following "rules": 1) all overlapping pixels should be averaged together, and 2) any "nodata" pixels in a given input image should be ignored in that calculation.
