How should PluginLayers handle map rotation? The OpenLayers plugin won't
rotate Google Maps layers, because it's against Google's TOS. Will you
automatically disable map rotation in presence of a PluginLayer or will there
be a API method to disable it?
Will digitizing plugins (, ) still work with rotated maps?
Or is there an architecture document (or a QEP) to understand the consequences
for plugins and other parts of QGIS (e.g. globe)?
