I've been getting in the habit of using a hybrid of xslt + DOM manipulation
(whatever binding you like; Python, Perl's XML::LibXML), whenver the XSL
would get too `nasty'.   Here you're xsl is simple enough, but ...

Anyway, have you considered computing the sum in some other language?
Loop over the files, for each file:
  read it in, compute partial sum, then the doc gets freed.
It would be essentially as simple as your stylesheet, providing it
fits into your `pipeline'...
