It would be great if Datamash had a feature to compute an arbitrary
percentile of a column.

You have great timing :)

Barry Nisly suggested and implemented such feature
just 2 weeks ago.
The latest patch is here:

The syntax will be:

 datamash perc:95 1 < input.txt

And you can specify any other desired percentile as a parameter.

I'm just waiting for final confirmation from Barry regarding
licensing, and then it will be included in datamash.

You can experiment with an unofficial (and unsopported) version
with his feature here:
