I don't think so.

If such thing should be added it should be as a plugin, I don't want the core 
of kimdaba cluttered with such features ;-)

If you have a lot of images, and know just a bit of programming, then I 
suggest that you (for your convenience) modify invaliddatefinder.cpp to 
display images with (*it)->angle() != 0, and once you have all those 
displayed, use the rotate plugin, first to rotate 90 degree, and next rotate 
back 90 degree.

Rotating using the plugin will initially rotate to 0 degree, so the angle on 
disk actually is correct.
