How does this differ from a small roundabout, other than the lack of a
one-way restriction?

If there is an island in the middle of a two-way street, surely you
are supposed to pass to the right (*) of the island.  I have to say
that I still don't understand how this works in practice, e.g. when
someone is turning left and someone is turning right, and they are
both trying to use the same part of the road.

(*) In right-hand side driving jurisdictions.
