[pstricks] pst-coil: a macro for a physical coil needed

Dear list,

please have a look at the code:


These two coils should be _in physical sense_ identic -- meaning, that 
they have the same number of windings.

Now is there already existing a code/command/macro, that defines the 
\pscoil with an option of _number of windings_ and so caclulating the 
coilheight parameter?
It would be physically correct to draw a coil -- enlarged or shrinked 
--  with the same number of windings. For sure there is a way to correct 
that with the _coilheight_.

Anyone done such a thing already? I guess to remember to have seen such 
an approach, however do not remember where.

Any ideas or solutions already or a link to a solution?

Thanks for your help.
