#626: percentile() and clamp()

 Two functions I am continually re-implementing in my own number-crunching
 projects are percentile() and clamp().  Here percentile(array, p) returns
 the pth percentile of array, using linear interpolation (p=0.5 is median,
 p=1.0 is max, p=0.25 is lower quartile, etc).  And clamp(array, lo, hi)
 clamps to lower and upper bound scalars.

 Would these functions be appropriate for numpy?  Will you accept patches?
