Most (but not all) functions in the math module implicitly convert its arguments to float. Here we can get an OverflowError. Do we want to add a note to every function that does it? Or add a general note at the top of the file and add exclusion notes to functions which do not convert arguments to float?

BTW, there is a general note: "Except when explicitly
noted otherwise, all return values are floats."
