Would these problems occur if we do what I suggested:

1. Keep the one-template-argument (which is type-based) versions of sinc_pi
and sinhc_pi. These would work with real, scalar numeric types.

template < typename T > T sinc_pi( T const &x );
template < typename T > T sinhc_pi( T const &x );

2. In quaternion.hpp and octonion.hpp, we have custom overloaded function
templates of sinc_pi and sinhc_pi.

template < typename T > quaternion<T> sinc_pi( quaternion<T> const &x );
template < typename T > quaternion<T> sinhc_pi( quaternion<T> const &x );

template < typename T > octonion<T> sinc_pi( octonion<T> const &x );
template < typename T > octonion<T> sinhc_pi( octonion<T> const &x );
