The plain const was actually less efficient for some platforms.
The only problems I see with the template function approach is
the extra typing:
v = pi
is certainly easier than
v = constant<pi_tag,double>
but it is not amenable to more precise implementations.
How about a compromise:
v = pi<double>()
and so on for all the other constants? I think this can be
made to work with even the most braindead compilers.
