About exact manipulation of PI and its powers...

There are many differences between "just" *irrational* and 
*transcendental* numbers. The work with algebraic / transcendental 
extensions is a bit different. No polynomial of PI with rational 
coefficients will vanish. If you replace PI by sqrt(2), well, you know 
the answer.
