what is exactly happening? Nothing or some are removed?

I wanted to suggest to run quartile statistics (extended stats in v.univar) on
an "area" column (if needed, add with v.to.db). But I realized that it only
supports extended statistics on point data :( No idea why this limitation...
So I thought to suggest the 1st quartile as threshold.

Maybe someone else has an idea?
