Circular Runways?

Found this BBC story regarding circular runways. Seems to me it would be nice not having to worry about running out of runway in a rejected takeoff or in a landing with poor braking conditions, but landing while in a banking turn seems a bit unorthodox. Any opinions out there on this?

Think again: Will circular runways ever take off? - BBC News

In several threads, in fact, given that the BBC article was more than 6 months ago.

Do they require a circling approach to land?
