    22> Won't that be a problem with this ticket?
    3 It appears the only solutions are (apart from relying on the user to supply needed precision):
     3It appears the only solutions are
    44A) restrict the range of parameters where ticket is applied
    55B) do not simplify; just fix the evaluation problem
    6 C) declare the problem to be in `n()`
     6C) rely on the user to supply needed precision; add warning

    8 I mean really, `n()` makes bold claims:
    9 {{{
    10    Returns a numerical approximation of an object "x" with at least
    11    "prec" bits (or decimal "digits") of precision.
    12 }}}
    13 but won't deliver when `x` is a polynomial?
     8EDIT: nonsense about `n()` removed
