Merge with Pipe (material)
Both this article and Pipe (material) state "The terms 'pipe' and 'tubing' are interchangeable." I propose that they both be merged into one article - either this or Pipe or maybe a new one called, e.g., 'Pipe and Tubing'.

Pipe and tubing are almost interchangable, as now stated in 'tubing'. Also, some tubing is square, rectangular and so on. You would be hard pressed to find a square pipe.
