#6893: Inaccurate Radians/Degrees conversion

Comment (by Roger Leigh <rleigh@…>):

 The constants in boost/match/constants/constants.hpp certainly appear to
 have the necessary accuracy. I was somewhat surprised to see only 4 d.p.
 accuracy when using boost::units conversions between rad/grad/deg due to
 the low precision constants used here while I was writing unit tests to
 validate the conversions. Updating it to use the math constants would be
 much appreciated. Do you need a patch providing?
