I imagine this still leaves a number of people in the dark.  Unless I misunderstand, my issue was that slices and projections do not follow the right hand rule, in that the following should be true:
slice_axis image_x image_y
##########################
x          y       z
y          z       x
z          x       y

slice_axis image_x image_y
##########################
x          y       z
y          x       z
z          x       y

I guess it's really just viewing along the y axis, but it does lead to having to do some work-arounds here and there.  I would be in favor of fixing this issue.

Yes, sorry.  The common criticism is that it's not a right-handed
coordinate system, and that the Orientation class is not used
everywhere.
