The LX hardware supports rotated blits, right?  So in principle, rotated
XV could be added to the driver if someone cared sufficiently...?

Tangentially related:
Anyone who uses gstreamer for video is likely using "xvimagesink" to
display video, but IMHO this is almost always a bad idea.  If another
application is already using XV, your gstreamer pipeline will simply fail.
 Instead, use "autovideosink", which attempts to use xvimagesink, and
silently falls back to ximagesink if XV is not available.
