That seems to fit my (pretty simple) need. I'm still trying to test it.
Indeed, I would find it more logical to have an empirical distribution
of the set of already existing
But an accumulator is just fine for now. By the way, does it mean that if we
have a set of 1 million of distinct real numbers, the corresponding
accumulator will store a pretty big number of counters?
