* Angles! This is a new feature ready to be tested.
* Polar complex numbers: quite rough in some edges, but implemented except a few places.
* Polar vectors: you can create them, but they are not ready to be operated upon.

Mostly the idea is to test all corner cases of angles and their associated commands, as well as complex vectors (don't forget to enable complex mode with -103 SF in order to get complex results from real operations).

Happy bug hunt.

One curious feature about power consumption: with the calculator off and drawing 4 mA, holding down left-shift, right-shift, or alpha decreases current to about one-tenth of this value! Pressing other buttons has no effect; current returns to 4mA when the button is released.

Although I've measured this with the latest firmware, it may have happened with the previous firmware too; I didn't test for it.
