Yes, we did discuss this earlier. It's a feature I would really like to have since
I'm an inveterate paper rotater when drawing with pen and ink myself :-).

 Adrian though it would be quite easy to do, especially in the OpenGL backend, 
but nobody got round to implementing it.  We could one-up Corel Painter by doing 
an implementation that actually works and doesn't crash every five minutes :-).
