Are you aware that it already is in the Floating class?
This discussion is not about adding it, but about whether or not it
should have a default.
Are you suggesting pi should be removed from the Floating class?
Then, what type would you give pi?
Given that pi is often used with sin, as in "sin (t * pi)" it would seem
very odd if pi forced that to be monomorphic:
\t -> sin t -- polymorphic
\t -> sin (t*pi) -- monomorphic ?
