std.math.sqrt() refuses an argument of type long (despite this is handy):

import std.math;
void main() {
    long x;
    sqrt(x);
}



With (dmd 2.060alpha):

test.d(4): Error: function std.math.sqrt called with argument types:
    ((long))
matches both:
    std.math.sqrt(float x)
and:
    std.math.sqrt(real x)



While this compiles with no errors:

import std.math;
void main() {
    long x;
    assert(!isnan(x));
}


Maybe isnan() has to statically refuse arguments that aren't built-in floating
point (maybe with a std.traits.isFloatingPoint template constraint), this
avoids some bugs (I have had a bug caused by this).
