Is log(-1) an error if -1 is real, but i*pi if -1 is -1+0*i and "log"
means principal value? Previously I expressed my concern that
language designers should not build in to the language ithmetic
semantics or pragmatics that are controversial (or downright wrong:
I recall Basic has the result of an overflow be 0). I wish you luck.
