FWIW, if you're specifically interested in complex square roots rather than powers in general, I'd recommend using `cmath.sqrt(value)` rather than `value**0.5` - there are fewer intermediate steps involved in computing `cmath.sqrt`, and the returned value will in general be a bit more accurate, and better defined in corner cases. (And probably slightly faster too, in the rare situations where that matters.)
