Okay, just to show it's possible:

Here (msum4.py) is a modified version of Raymond's recipe that deals 
correctly with:

 (1) intermediate overflows
 (2) special values (infs and nans) in the input, and
 (3) always gives correctly rounded results.

The file contains more tests, and a proof of correctness.  The algorithm 
still makes only a single pass through the given iterable, and there 
should be minimal slowdown in the common case.  It's still only 60-70 
lines of Python code, so I don't think it would be unreasonable to aim 
to include these modifications in the C version.
