> 1. Many constants are the return values of functions taking a certain
parameter. In a perfect world, these wouldn't be constants at all, but
would simply be written sqrt(2) or gamma(1/3.), or the like.
sqrt(2) can be done by a boost::sqrt(int) that checks for the constants it
recognizes. The rest will be computed on the fly.
