display configuration which is what drives the control-center display
panel, and that D-Bus interface does support rotation.
The X11 implementation in mutter is translating it into XRANDR and does
support rotation. The Wayland implementation translates it into libdrm
calls, and does not support rotation yet.
OK, I must've had it garbled. The result's the same, anyhow.
I could also quibble with the notion that "I happen to use a
