The references to i in Formal_Power_Series are restricted to a very
small and simple (almost trivial) set of theorems that are completely
disconnected from everything else in there. They are about the
relationship between sin, cos, tan, and exp as formal power series and
I'm pretty sure they're not used anywhere in the distribution or the AFP
(a quick grep seems to confirm that). They're certainly relevant, but I
see no problem in moving them somewhere else.

On the other hand, I'm not sure what your exact plans for restructuring
are, but I thought we were going to have some session that contains
complex number and the basic operations on them but not integration.
Then Computational_Algebra could import that. Or perhaps Complex could
import Computational_Algebra (not sure if that makes sense). But as I
said, I also don't see a problem with simply moving those few theorems
out of Formal_Power_Series.
