^ is usually bitwise XOR (in C, and Pd's expr).
** is used for powers in a number of languages (Haskell, Fortran too I
But, there is the potential confusion of [pow][pow~][**][**~], it would
be nice if the signal version of maths behaved the same as the
non-signal maths with the same name (confusing if [pow] exists but the
signal equivalent is [**~]).
