Half in jest -- and therefore half seriously. Of course I can easily
form cosh, sinh etc out of exp but it would be nice to have them
built-in. It would be good to check elaborate 'trigonometric'
simplifications (does 'trigonometric' apply to hyperbolic functions?) at
general values of variables rather than values specially chosen to ease
