I was going to suggest that the Euler-Mascheroni constant (0.577215...) is
in the same class, then I remembered that unlike the others, we don't even
know if it's irrational. I guess that makes it in a class of its own, and
maybe even more worthy of study?
That being said, I don't think that studying the primes in the decimal
expansion of the constant is going to lead to a proof of irrationality
or transcendentality.
