Circular bounding Box

I came across an old tweet of mine today that lead to an article about centering the play button icon:

It got me thinking that while I use the bounding box dozens of times a day, it seems like a circular bounding box would be exceptionally helpful as well. Especially in two use cases:

  1. For determining the rotational maximums of movements about a center point.
  2. For understanding where non-area specific centroidal points live within a circular space.

Would be curious to hear if this is of interest. Maybe I can write a script that does this as a prototype.
