If f=a*x^2+b*x+c, Coefficient[f,x^2] obviously returns a.
But if f=a*x^2+b*x+c==0, it returns 0.
The problem arose using the Calculus`VariationalMethods` package.
It (unfortunately) returns the Euler-Lagrange equations as
such, so I have to remove the useless ==0 appendage for
Coefficient to work properly. Is there a simple direct way out?
