As requested in the formal review, I would appreciate having documentation
about the general rule how the constant names are synthesized.
This will answer questions such as:
  Is 2/3 pi named pi_2_3 or pi_2_3rd ?
  Is sqrt(2) name sqrt_2 or ... ?

I believe having a well-defined rule makes the library easier to use,
because users have to look up names in the documentation less often
during day-to-day programming.

(Yes, I think it's non-trivial to come up with a logical, consistent
naming scheme.)
