    By the way, you *can* define functions, like: cube root(x) = x^(1/3)

    This is annoying because not all transformations are visible as built-in functions. Some are "word operators," like "root" which becomes the sqrt operator, leading to the "cube root of 9" resulting in sqrt(9) instead. Word operators are displayed in global prefs. Function defs are on the document window, but they're still global: my finger slipped and I deleted a built-in function and I can't see a way to get it back, short of reinstalling.
