No, multiplication by 2 is substantially different than by 180 or 200.
  The size of numbers matters when doing mental math.

`turn` is already something we probably wouldn't add today; it's only 
in because somebody slid it in years ago and we all sorta implemented 
it.  Just use tau radians (or pi diams) like math should have been.
