The coordinates (one of them) IS the sine corrsponding to that cosine, and

vice versa. I suppose that one could turn the algorythm a little bit to

yield a true sine or cosine, or, use the ellipsis algorythm (by Bresenham)

to approximate the sine using a linear increment. Remains to be seen how

accurate this can be made.

For now, no. But I'll try to elaborate ;) It looks like a good idea,

though. Something might come from it.
