That might be cherry picking.  Trying to make up something a little more

    a**b * -c**d + e

    Math.pow(a, b) * -Math.pow(c, d) + e

    a.pow(b) * -c.pow(d) + e

I don't have strong feelings on this issue, but the third option looks
pretty good to me.  If we had some form of pipelining syntax (yet to be
proposed), then we could have:

    let { pow } = Math;
    a->pow(b) * -c->pow(d) + e;
