Yes. Something missing in C++ (at least, the last time I used C++
std::complex<> in my own programs) is a way to form lvalue expressions
to access std::complex<> components. For example, to set the
imaginary part, one has to write something alon the lines

        z = std::complex<double>(z.real(), imag_part);
