Question: I want sin( phi*n ) not sin(n*phi) in an axis label, but Maple is being recusant

BTW "recusant" is an old word, religious in origin, for someone who refuses to do what they're told, or believe what they're told to believe.

Here's my problem:

phi := (1+sqrt(5))/2;

plots[pointplot]([seq([n, sin(n*phi)], n = 1000 .. 2000)], symbol = point, axes = boxed, labels = [n, typeset('sin(n*phi)')], labeldirections = [horizontal, vertical])

produces a label sin( n phi ).  I want it to say sin( phi n ). 

I've tried the noncommuting times &*  (which prints &*) and the matrix product . (which prints as a function call).

Is there a way to typeset this product in the order that I want?  Here "n" is the variable and "phi" is the constant (yes that looks weird, but so does the graph).  I suspect that there is; I think "typeset" is probably much more powerful than I have been kludging it as.  Help?
