Somewhat nasty function computation

Are there any good ways of handling the computation of
functions where for part of the region the "usual" formula
gives rise to large roundoff errors? The USER who is adept
at numerical analysis can go through the effort of writing
a procedure to do so, but is this not contrary to the
spirit of computer algebra systems?
