17412 improve documentation of 'solve()' jakobkroeker "Even if it is expectable that in some cases solve() may not return all solutions, it should be explicitly pointed out; especially it should be stated that an empty list does not necessarily imply there are no solutions.
See also the discussion at https://groups.google.com/d/msg/sage-support/cg7QYw_1ncg/VKdH3CX4qYsJ
Example from that thread:
{{{
solve(5^( x -1) == (1/25)^(2*x), x)
# []
solve(5^( x -1) == (1/25)^(2*x), x,to_poly_solve=True)
#[x == (2*I*pi*z41 + log(5))/log(3125)]
}}}
