I couldn't find any code to do quantiles in Python. It seems like it
belongs in python-stats, and maybe other places like MLab or matplotlib.
But at least in python-stats. Put it there if you think it belongs.
I've attached the code. It's based on the documentation given in R for
help(quantile). It's pretty straightforward and works on the two
testcases I've supplied.
It doesn't handle missing values. At least, I have no reason to expect
