> a double-check that the behaviour change is desirable

I'm not sure I'm brave or foolhardy enough to try to figure out what all of the special case results *should* be for complex pow. The special cases seem reasonably clear cut for everything else in the cmath module, but for pow it's pretty much going to be a nightmare. I'm not sure there's much Python can do here in the way of guarantees, other than "not obviously horribly wrong". (And while I have reasonable confidence we can achieve the "not obviously horribly wrong" goal for everything else, I still have doubts for pow.)
