I think that whether or not something is trivial doesn't really correlate to whether or not it has its place in the language. After all, `math.pi` is 3.1416, and most people using pi will not worry about more than 4 decimal digits. Those who do are presumably using something better than floating-point arithmetic to begin with ;)

For yet another colour to paint this tiny bikeshed, maybe we could put new constants in something like `math.constants`, with aliases to existing ones. Of course, I don't mean to point out how ridiculously disproportioned this discussion is, but...
