[Rd] There is pmin and pmax each taking na.rm, how about psum?

Not pdiff because i) psum(x,-y,na.rm=TRUE) would do that and ii) diff is
quite unlike -. Yes, pprod too, but not pdiv (or precip) because
pprod(x,y^-1,na.rm=TRUE) would dominate that.

I like the suggestion, but not as useful as psum and pprod. It would
probably be going too far to add those too. Plus in ?groupGeneric, under
section 3, there are 7 functions listed :
min, max, sum, prod, range, all, any
The p* would be extended to 2 more of those 7. Wouldn't make sense for
prange, pall or pany. So, just psum and pprod. ^, %%, %/%, &, and | are
listed in section 2, Group "ops" and seem different to sum and prod in
