Well, I would be a little careful changing these.  Some of the definitions
in numerical part of the Prelude look more convoluted than they need to
be, but it's because they have better numerical properties.  I know Joe
Fasel spent a lot of work on getting definitions that are numerically well

But we should definitely have the "default definitions" for sinh and cosh.
Any decent implementation will of course override these for speed and
