Feature proposal: mobileActualAllowedOrientations?

I have the orientation on my phone locked to portrait. I'm sure I'm not 
the only person in the world who locks their orientation.

LiveCode is the only app on my phone that doesn't respect a locked 
orientation, freely jiggling around as I rotate my phone.

I can lock the orientation within my app, but I shouldn't have to.

And if I did, how could I know which orientation a user has locked to?

I can't find anything in the Dictionary that suggests how to resolve 
this, so I'm thinking of either of two Bugzilla submissions:

a) mobileActuallAllowedOrientations (or some more graceful name),
    a proposed function which returns the actual orientations the device
    is currently set to allow.

b) Bug report that LC doesn't respect the device's orientation lock.

Which do you folks feel is the better option?
