How is
"For all n: f(n) = 1 , lim_n-->oo f(n) = 1"
needed to calculate the differential quotient of f(x) = e^x at x = pi?

It can ONLY be of any use in correctly calculating differential
quotients in the rare cases in which the difference quotients at a point
are all equal regardless of the differences in x.

I.e., when the delta-y over delta-x ratio is constant, as in linear
functions.

So apparently WM never gets anywhere beyond the derivatives of linear
functions. About what one might expect from WM.
