Is there a way to protect built-in variables? This means that I get a warning if I use code like this:

pi = 5
var('I')

If you ever lose a constant, bring it back via their absolute references:

sage: pi = 3
sage: pi = sage.symbolic.constants.pi
sage: pi.n()
3.14159265358979
sage: sage.symbolic.constants.[TAB]
sage.symbolic.constants.Catalan
sage.symbolic.constants.Constant
sage.symbolic.constants.E
sage.symbolic.constants.EulerGamma

sage.symbolic.constants.GoldenRatio
sage.symbolic.constants.I
sage.symbolic.constants.Khinchin
sage.symbolic.constants.Log2

Where is the lower case i..? Anyway, I know how to get them back (one can also use restore). It's just that I want to avoid strange bugs which can happen if I set the value of a built-in variable.
