Yes, as it relates to the very small subset of widgets/gadgets which
rely on the rotate command.

In my widget collection (fewer than two dozen, as I think Dahsboard is a
waste of Apple's resources), only one uses the rotate command.

In nearly a decade of making my living with the Rev engine, I've never
been unable to pay my rent because I couln't rotate an image more

Think of it visually:
