Summary0001632: Allow entering of diameter instead of radius for circle radius constraint.
DescriptionWhen adding a radius constraint to a circle, it would be useful to be able to switch to entering the diameter instead of the radius, when the documentation from which I generate the constraints only provides diameters. No more division by 2 in my head ;-)

One could simply add a drop-down "radius","diameter" to the dialog box asking for the radius.

Given that you have to enter an odd value as diameter e.g. "22.126 mm" then the workaround is to write "22.126/2 mm" instead.

Additionally the diameter constraint can be supported, too. This however will be a new constraint type with is own symbol in the 3d view. Just replacing the current radius input with a diameter input and doing the division by 2 internally might be confusing because in the 3d view something different is shown that the user may not expect.

I'd like to implement this. I'll try to get a patch submitted in the next day or two.
