[Python-ideas] π = math.pi

It's awfully easy to add in your own code. Since they are simply aliases, I
don't see why bother put the duplication in the standard library. You can
even monkey patch if you want it in the 'math' namespace. I'd prefer a bare
'π' in my own code though.

What you are think about adding Unicode aliases for some mathematic names
in the math module? ;-)

math.π = math.pi
math.τ = math.tau
math.Γ = math.gamma
math.ℯ = math.e

Unfortunately we can't use ∞, ∑ and √ as identifiers. :-(
