3.8 Circles & Border Smoothness

Hello -

We've created circles with the JS API in the past using buffer.  One issue we have with these is at certain zoom levels, the circle border gets choppy.  This is likely because there are too many or too few points, depending on the circle size and zoom level.

We were hopeful that the new Circle API would remedy this, and somehow always have smooth borders regardless of zoom level and circle size.  This doesn't seem to be the case (see attached for 3.8 circle example).

Are there any plans to try to shape the new circles so they're "smooth" regardless of size/zoom?
