I also just realized that the first time I looked at this, when I
switched to the satellite and street view, I was actually looking at
http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/158299144

Which looks like it *is* a roundabout (with stop signs instead of
yield indications), but isn't tagged as one.

After looking at the right one, I would say that
http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/25529510 is *absolutely* not a
roundabout.  Among other problems, the approaches are essentially
tangent to the circle.

However, if people want to tag it that way, I couldn't be bothered to
care any more.
