Which means that I misread the sources. I was referring to
 | 2$ | 3$| #ERROR |
 #+tblfm: $3=$2+$1

Error in the above is because Calc handles "$" specially.

No. It became a part of Emacs, AFAIU.
New (small) things are being added to Calc as a part of Emacs development.

>From NEWS.29:

** Calc

*** New user option 'calc-kill-line-numbering'.
Set it to nil to exclude line numbering from kills and copies.

>From NEWS.28:

** Calc

*** The behavior when doing forward-delete has been changed.
Previously, using the 'C-d' command would delete the final number in
the input field, no matter where point was.  This has been changed to
work more traditionally, with 'C-d' deleting the next character.
Likewise, point isn't moved to the end of the string before inserting

*** Setting the word size to zero disables word clipping.
The word size normally clips the results of certain bit-oriented
operations such as shifts and bitwise XOR.  A word size of zero, set
by 'b w', makes the operation have effect on the whole argument values
and the result is not truncated in any way.

*** The '/' operator now has higher precedence in (La)TeX input mode.
It no longer has lower precedence than '+' and '-'.

*** New user option 'calc-make-windows-dedicated'.
When this user option is non-nil, Calc will mark its windows as
