Indeed. However, which way should they be rotated? Clockwise or
counterclockwise? We would need a special encoding cookie, consisting
of the Braille encoding of "zero-width space", with a guarantee that
its inverted form will never be used to mean anything. Alternatively,
you could have programs attempt to autodetect the rotation used, which
will be perfect unless Bush hid the facts.
