	Right - and that is achievable in linear time.

	The problem there (as well as the ergonomic one you point out) is that
all that rendering and interaction code would be extremely
time-consuming to produce - such that the feature would stay not-done,
and people would not be able to rotate their images by 90degrees which
is mostly what they want :-)
