Hmmmmm.  I was told (by a Wolfram instructor) that Total was supposed
to be faster than Tr.  I ran a couple of tests in version 7.0.1 and
found for a long array of integers that Total was in fact marginally
faster than Tr, but nothing to get too excited about.  This could be a
version dependent thing.
