[GRASS-user] v.label text orientation

v.label allows to curl text along lines (c flag) or rotate label to
align with line orientation (a flag). Thus labels are created in order
to display upside-up on the map, whatever the line direction, probably
to make text easier to read.

When it comes to label contour lines, it can be convenient (in fact
mandatory) to place text upside-down : conventionally figures point
toward upslope. The trick would be to orient text in accordance with
line direction.

Is there an option I missed or is it simply impossible with v.label ?
