Has anyone developed a defensible method of estimating percentiles from a
univariate kernel density estimate?  I am working on a problem in which the
density estimate is of interest, but I would also like to estimate the
value of the variable for which the distribution was, say, 0.20.  I spent
some time searching the archives and found some message from 2006 that
implied such a method was not available at that time.
