Note that neither -graph box- nor -graph hbox- purports to show the 95%
percentile as such. 

In addition, see

I am using -graph box- to get a distribution box plot.  Is there an
automatic way to put the text, 95% percentile, 75% percentile, median,
etc., next to the corresponding lines of the boxes?
