Fair enough.  :) I just have a nearly-physical aversion to magic
numbers, and that one is relatively obscure as digit strings go
(compared to 3.14159, 2.71828, 0.618, etc.)  Of course, if someone were
sufficiently motivated, they would have just consulted the Inverse
Symbolic Calculator:


Oh, and I didn't mean to use M_PI directly... it was more of a hint to
look there for other useful magic numbers.
