diff output of exponential functions are wrong!
the maxima output
diff(3^x,x) = log(3) 3^x --> wrong!!!
how it should be:
f(x) = 3^x
f'(x)= 3^x ln(3)

In Maxima, the natural log function is log. To view the user
documentation for log, try:
(%i2) ? log;
1: Definitions for Logarithms.
And by the way, it's not just Maxima that uses log for the
natural log. Except in a calculus book, I assume that log
means the natural log.
