 Oh no :-(

 This was discussed at rather excessive length when Paul Bristow submitted
 his numeric constants library.... and no one could agree what the
 "correct" interface was, so the library was rejected. This is the main
 reason why our numeric constants are still considered implementation
 details (albeit semi-documented ones).

 I'm CC'ing Paul on this in case he wants to comment.

 I guess about the only thing everyone agreed upon during the review was
 the need for a set a constants library.

 Regards, John.
