The statistics module is soon to get a quantile function.
For those of you who use statistics software (whether in Python, or
using other languages) and specifically use quantiles, what sort of
functionality would be useful to you?
- evenly-spaced quantiles (say, at 0.25, 0.5, 0.75)?
- unevenly-spaced quantiles (0.25, 0.8, 0.9, 0.995)?
- one quantile at a time?
- any specific definition?
- quantiles of a distribution?
- anything else?
Thanks in advance.
