Tau radians

I believe that tau radians are a fundamentally advantageous angle representation because they are based upon fractions of a circle. This allows us to relate any fraction to an angle, for example 0.25 becomes 90 degrees.

Any complex number can then be approximated by a natural number and two fractions, the first one for the fractional part of the maginitude and the second one for the number's angle on the complex plane. For example, (3, 5) could be represented as (5 0.83 0.16).
