[Maxima] When to simplify complete elliptic integrals?

Just noticed that the documentation for elliptic_kc and elliptic_ec says
to use makegamma to convert these functions to gamma functions when
possible. Thus elliptic_ec(1/2) remains elliptic_ec(1/2). But call
makegamma and we get an expression involving gamma(1/4).
Is that how the simplification of elliptic_ec should be done? Should
elliptic_ec(1/2) returned the gamma expression itself?
