>> Let’s try and keep this on topic - most replies to this message has been
>> about #9211, which is an orthogonal issue.
>> There are two main questions here:
>> 1. Would the community prefer to use np.quantile(x, 0.25) instead of np.percentile(x,
>> 25), if they had the choice
>> 2. Is this desirable enough to justify increasing the API surface?
>> The general consensus on the github issue answers yes to 1, but is
>> neutral on 2. It would be good to get more opinions.
> I think a quantile function would be natural and desirable.
