Regarding summing accounts for the main accounts page

Asked on the User list, but didn't get any response there (and I've just joined this list since I'm beginning to play with the code gently)

I always thought it odd that the Total column contained all sub-accounts, but the present column (the main other one that I personally use) doesn't contain sub-accounts.

Does anyone know why this was done? Looking at the code it seems to be intentional, I've compiled my own version of 2.3.8 that does accumulate sub-accounts for present column and it works just fine (at least so far) so, just curious.
