When you do something like "get_constant_pi()", I see you
are "warm-caching" the result from the first computation. Great.

Just to double-check...
I see the static bool flag, right? It's warm-cached, right? Yes. OK.
Please confirm:

Would you like to "seed" common constants such as pi, e, sqrt2, ln2, etc.
with a known string representation of, say, a few hundred digits?
Or is reading the string slower than computing the value?

Best regards, Chris.
