I understand that we are the only ones to be different here. My
colleague Josh also helped me grasp the implications of this issue.

I would say that we mustn't be different. So please consider fixing
this. Some users might have started something with rotations but we'll
make sure to help them with the issue encountered and our additional DRM
libraries (like libplanes) can be fixed easily to make this change

Rotation works for our use cases.

Thanks for continuing the discussion Boris and thanks to Peter for this
work. You have my opinion: please go-on with the fix.

Best regards,
