Discussion of "cukla"

Comment #1: Characteristics

I think that the shape should be mostly round (but not necessarily
perfectly/ideally circular).

Additionally, it might be that the default assumption is that, in the
abstract(ion), the shape is (essentially) closed. I normally would consider
spirals to be "round"/"circular", but since they qualify (according to the
original definitions) as djine (which has, in its nature, roundness but
which seems to be more forgiving/general (including with dimensionality but
not restricted thereto)) in Lojban, I think that they should not qualify as
cukla. Or, of course, we can have another word.

Actually this "djine might not be closed" is rather confusing. A normal
geometically formalized definitions of "round","circle","spiral","ellipse"
+ similar concepts for 3D etc. are necessary imo preferably not via
proliferating new words but instead by planning better place structures or
even bridi
