> The 2.1 implementation of Percentile sorts the sample array each time its evaluate method
is called.
> When a lot of different percentiles are to be computed for the same sample, this unduces
a lot of sorting work that could be avoided.
> When only one percentile is desired, a complete sort is also a waste of efforts as it
runs in O(n ln(n)) when only a selection in O(n) would be sufficient.
