I would like a native proc for calculating the distance between two tiles in a circular shape. This proc would compliment get_dist() which calculates distance in a square shape. I'm well aware this is possible with soft code, but I think a native procedure would be at least a tiny bit speedier. It's also a feature you'd figure BYOND would have right out of the box.
Here's a diagram to illustrate some of the distances it would return:
