Thanks! Haven't thought about that.

You can find that out by yourself if you knew that functions in egen
are stored in _g<functionname>.ado . So, if you type:

viewsource _gtotal.ado

and 

viewsource _gsum.ado

You can see that -sum()- calls -total()-, leading to unnecesary
overhead, otherwise the two are the same.
