Sorry. I proposed this idea as a joke. math.π is useless, but mostly
harmless. But I don't want to change Python grammar.
The rule for Python identifiers already is not easy, there is no simple
regular expression for them, and I'm sure most tools proceeding Python
sources (even the tokenize module and IDLE) do not handle all Python
identifier correctly. For example they don't recognize the symbol ℘
(U+2118, SCRIPT CAPITAL P) as a valid identifier.
