I agree with Raymond.
In my opinion, it doesn't seem like there is a need to add such a constant.
I know many of my previous and current colleagues would not use it (why should them if they can just write "2 * math.pi" ?)
It seems that the efforts to spread the word that Pi is wrong and Tau is right haven't "bear fruits". For now I don't think we should make such a strong stand in adding it.
If we do add new constants they should be of calculations that are harder and might ruin the code's visibility.
