sure, but I'm a bit confused -- there is a tiny amount of memory
involved in the accumulator -- isn't it a single number?
(or, for doing it along an axis, at least it's one order of magnitude
And with a double precision floating point unit, is the math any slower?
would you have to push any more memory around?
