Not really.

And also, we will be doing a lot of binding, and there is no reason
why we should just reimplement the math stuff when it is already
there: tested, debugged, and functional.

So using `PInvoke' to call functions in the standard math library is
great, because it is a mechanism that we will support right from the start.
