I would like to propose a minor change to Mike's suggested text:

"Otherwise, returns the average of the values computed as sum($arg) div
count($arg); or an otherwise equivalent algorithm."

This allows not only algorithms that avoid the overflow but also algorithms
that may be preferable for performance or other reasons.
