Operator overloading (and function overloading) helps but not enough. You
have to be aware of the complex type *everywhere* you go and that's very
annoying and error prone. I've been the works with C++, and later with
Modelica. I am very happy that Python included *native* complex number
I really like Python's notion of having just one data type: the duck.
