Description
From sage-support:

I would consider this a bug, but because it should return a symbolic expression. sage: a = sin(pi) sage: a 0 sage: type(a) <type 'sage.symbolic.expression.Expression'> It's possible to get this behavior: sage: type(sin(0,hold=True).simplify()) <type 'sage.symbolic.expression.Expression'> Anyway, this is an oversight, I would say. Anyone else care to comment? Otherwise it would be great if you'd file a bug report. This is important to fix, because some Sage code depends on the input in integer form being Sage integer or something else with Sage methods, not a Python int, and one could imagine someone relying on this and getting a nasty exception.
