We have
A
B
(with various Rev sub cats)
B+
A+

What is agreed shorthand for this one
B2
2B
2B+
B+2
.....

This is the important question - forget compatility issues and how fast does the pram travel! :)

Pi2B? Really? Why use an FLA when a TLA,TLA or OLA will do? :)

I like that as I am a Tau man

Wwho wants to wast time multiplying unnecessarily by 2 - you can gain an extra 20% of your life if you a mathematician or engineer by the time saved on not writing 2x and pressing 2x on a calculator :)

But the Foundation probably have trademarked that for the next months new model :)

Call it "circumference". From 2 pi R (slightly rearranged as R pi 2).

"Two bee" is too Shakespearean for my mathematical mind.
