<<< Math.PI >>>;

3.141593 :(float)

I think "pi" without Math. was added before Math.PI, so its probably  
kept around now for backwards compatibility.

For what its worth, I think the canonical way to get e is actually  
Math.E (following the Java convention of capitalizing constant  
names).  But Math.e works too clearly.
