[math] gamma test cases

+1 for writing down the guidelines.  This is not obvious.  We are not currently 
internally consistent.  One way to become consistent internally for the special 
case of real-valued functions would be adopt the categorical stance that 
whenever a real-valued function is invoked with arguments outside of its 
domain, NaN is returned.  This is pretty much what java.lang.Math does.  
Personally, I have never liked this behaviour, but I could support it.  
Whatever we decide, the most important thing is that *all* behaviors be clearly 
documented in the javadocs.  Someone should propose a set of guidelines and 
post to the list.  I am willing to take a stab at it, but will not be able to 
do the necessary analysis until the end of this week.
