Do you mean RMS or DB or peak levels over time? It should be the same as what is used in DB level displays or compressors, just with the side being used.

vumeter has code to calculate DB over time. dynamics_meter contains code for 3 types of levels over time. Depends on how complex or "accurate" you need it.

Here is some basic code using a decay style level. Or, you can implement a window style level, which is just calculating the level of the average over a time period (window).
Thanks. I suspect RMS will be more useful. The idea is to create an automation envelope from the stereo width of one audio item and apply that to pan on another item.
