Currently, there is math.pow( float, float ) but no dedicated power 
operator (like ** in python?).  Other languages sometimes use a^b to 
denote power, however ^ is the xor binary operator in ChucK (like in C). 
Unless there is a really compelling reason to include a specialized
power operator, it is unlikely chuck will support it (at least for now).
