Description (last modified by )
I don't know how this might be done, but
for n in range(1,10): sum(k, k, 1, n)
doesn't work, while
for n in [1..10]: sum(k,k,1,n)
does. We need to fix
int(3)._maxima_() AttributeError: 'int' object has no attribute '_maxima_'

Sure, if Pynac sum expressions had been known to exist (or how to use them) when this code went in. There was also some weird bug that this originally took care of that had to do with held expressions in Maxima, if I recall correctly, though that had ceased to be an issue.
This just goes to show that we need some sort of Pynac tutorial so that more people can be effective on this!

I don't think it's possible to monkey-patch methods onto int, but the symbolic sum issue has been fixed and I have a patch with a doctest (needs review!) at #9393.

This is a duplicate of #9393. There is a patch with a doctest attached to that ticket.

the particular error that arises here is raised in sage/calculus/calculus.pyc line 501:
One could fix this one by first coercing a,b into SR. As an example:
This code looks rather convoluted to me anyway: Convert to maxima, take string representative, paste together and then simplify? Shouldn't the whole sum first be turned into a pynac sum expression, the whole thing converted to maxima, simplified, and then cast back?
