Talking about C99:

I was surprised to see the complex version of 0, in C and C yielded one result in this expression where as the real version of 0, in C and C yielded a distinct value.

Take power((0,0i),(0,0i)) and you get (nan, nan i) but take power(0,0) and you get 1.

Even among software languages for Mathematicians, 00 is 1 with the exception of Mathematica where you get Indeterminate.

It seems reasonable to me for power(0,0) to return 1, in a language like EUPHORIA.
