Currently, the way to do this is with window queries where you sort each
sub-group and grab the pertinent rows as an approximation of the quantiles
you want.

Another way would be to use an approximate data structure like a t-digest
via an aggregating user-defined function (UDF).

Last I checked, there were some limitations in the ability to do this, but
things may have changed.
