I see the difficulty in determining whether the x=0.5 should be evaluated before or after. Since taylor(sin(x))x=0.5 is evaluated before, but ∂(sin(x),x)x = 0.5 is evaluated after, I assume there is some way in the source code to indicate which functions are "before" and which are "after." Or is ∂() a special case?
