Emacs has two built-in calculators; calculator.el, which is a basic
scientific calculator, and Calc, which is more extensive.

The original bug report was for calculator.el, in which E is currently
undefined.  I'm not sure who should address this bug report, but if
nobody else does, I will.

Good point, I can make the change (for F1 only) in Calc, too.
