Programming is about taking a problem and dividing it into smaller
problems, and then solve them.

So let's divide the problem

1. Read numbers from the user. See input(), raw_input() and int() in the
   library reference.
2. Add numbers -- this should be easy
3. Do something continuously until something happens -- see tutorial
   about the while loop
