My colleague, Sal Alfano, included in distribution observes with
relevance that the state of Indiana in the U.S., legislated that Pi=3
for convenience. Eliminating leap seconds for convenience is similar.
In the former case, it meant that no circle would ever close, lacking
(pi/3-1) fraction of the circumference. So it will be with time.
