FWIW, a PGO build of Py3.7 is now about 20% *faster* here than my Ubuntu 16/04 system Python 2.7, and for some (probably unrelated) reason, the system Python 3.5 is another 2% faster on my side.

IMHO, the only other thing that seems obvious to try would be to inline the unpacking of single digit PyLongs into sum(). I attached a simple patch that does that, in case someone wants to test it out. For non-PGO builds, it's about 17% faster for me. Didn't take the time to benchmark PGO builds with it.
