I suspect that the people using org-table sum would not want to split
the function in two: itʼs a useful utility function (and why split off
the integer summing? Thatʼs always going to be accurate).

You could make org-table-sum use calc, which would achieve the same. I
donʼt think there'd be any complaints about floating-point additions
suddenly being more accurate (famous last words)
