Zero to the power of zero, though undefined, is often "defined" to be 1 for
several reasons. See this entry in the sci.math FAQ:
http://www.faqs.org/faqs/sci-math-faq/specialnumbers/0to0/

I would consider the current behaviour of returning 1 far more desirable than
what is requested. Change resolution to WONTFIX?
