        1. Use long double const. (Works for C and C++)

        2. Supply normative references:
this is more important than anything else.

        3. Choose useful constants. :-)
All values should be scientific constants
(not resource limits, which belong elsewhere).

        4. You do NOT need to satisfy all users.

        5. KISS!
