Yeah, it might be a little disruptive in flipping OffAxisProjectionPlots and such, but ultimately, it is doing things correctly now.  I'm +0.5 on this, as I know it's going to make some of my past plots require swapping the L term. :)

Hi all,

Bili put in a PR to reverse the orientation of yt's default angular momentum vector to be closer to what most people expect given conventions about right handed coordinate systems.


I'm a little nervous about merging this since it might be disruptive. Does anyone see any issues with merging? People on master branch should know what they're in for?

If no one responds here or comments in the PR I'll probably merge the PR next week.
