I do understand the issues with floating point numbers. It's just that if
the SOURCE numbers all come out with 2 decimal places, I would expect their
SUM to also. I would just expect the database to add them together the
same way I would (line up the decemal points and add). It just seems like
a simple thing for it to do to get a "precise" sum from "precise" source

I mean, the source numbers at least come out precisely in the output. i.e.
Why does 7.34 output as 7.34, and not 7.340000000000000021, but the sum has
that problem?
