It's close. But the problem is that the freq list in my application
is going to be a huge number so to make a list from v and freq to put
in that function may not be feasible.
I looked at the source code, in the comment it suggests the Gnu R
functions. So I may be using the wtd.quantile under Hmisc library of
R via rpy.
