I am surprised that this was not proposed before. Perhaps because it is so easy to write x**(1/3), and if you want a real root of negative argument, it is -(-x)**(1/3). It can be slightly less accurate that the result of C library function cbrt(), but good enough for any practical applications.

Ajith, was you aware of x**(1/3)?
