Simulate (more) angular airframes in RockSim

In last month's Apogee newsletter, RockSim-meister Bruce Levison instructed us on ways we might simulate square rockets in RockSim.  I this month's edition, #297, Bruce extends his work to other angular cross sections, from a triangle to a dodecagon.  Past 12 sides, I suspect there isn't much need to use anything but an equivalent round tube.
