I have from about 90 to 600 points of different data sets that I would 
like to find the 10th and 90th percentile for. Does numpy have a 
function for that, or any other percentile points?  Is there a method 
for getting at the Box Plot quartiles, and ranges. I think that's the 
simplest set for Box plots. I don't need to draw anything.
