It sounds to me like what you want is this: 
Given dir1 you want to add 4 from the files attribute of folder[@id='dir1'] , plus 3 from the files attribute from folder[@id='dir2'], plus the 6 from the files attribute of folder[@id='dir3'] for a total of 13.

I believe the following xslt should fit your needs. It could probably be simplified, but I was just banging it out...

I've learned to love <xsl:message> while writing this, excellent for dumping out what's going on...

Sorry, I guess the example was a little unclear.  I want to sum the files attribute for *all* folders under the initial parent.  So the result I'd want from dir0 would be 25.  The sum of the file attributes of all the folder elements is 27. 

Is that a little clearer?

All branches and leaves, but not the trunk. (where an arbitrary starting point is the trunk)
