Similar functionality has already been added to transform operator in
Blender 2.70

In your example I would thus do the following.
R (rotate)
= (initiate advanced number input)
360 / 8 (type in the equation)
enter (voila! :)

Many other options for equations and python expressions are possible, but
the release notes should explain it better than me.
