Output Configuration for Add/Multiply Array Elements

Many times I like to keep my memory footprint small by using "right-size" data representations for my arrays.  Unfortunately, in the event I need to sum the array elements using the 'Add Array Elements' I am stuck in rollover city.  I can then blow up the data to a larger size or write out the sum (or product) longhand.

I would prefer an output configuration to let me specify the representation of the array sum or product:

I'll CAR the documentation issue.

Note to moderators who look for keyword "CAR": The documentation issue is separate from the idea, so do not decline the idea. The idea itself has not been converted to a CAR.
