I agree with Paolo, and also see the value of Sandro's argument that
developing such functionality in a branch get's much less
testing/viewing and is very hard to merge back. Myself I only had a
serious look at it when it was in master...

So as long as we can hide it for normal users (even without tickbox, we
can make a cli-option for it :-) ), AND nothing is broken I'm in favour
of letting it in master.

I think Sandro should hide the spinbox in the statusbar for now, and
nay-sayers should now try to find bugs related to rotation work?

There is a PSC-meeting on 2th januari, let's make the final decision there.
