I'm having a bit of trouble with this one.
Integral of sqrt(tan(x)) is notoriously horrible. u^2 = tan x is the natural sub but you end up having to integrate something with denominator 1+u^4 which is a bit nasty...

The choice of limits makes me wonder if you can possibly do something quicker by looking at u = pi/2 - x and combining, but looking at the actual solution (via Wolfram) I'm not sure there is going to be any good trick here.
