yeah, I was also wondering why it's working. I just did "xrandr -o
left" and my display was rotated unexpectedly :) I have not yet
checked what happens in that case.

Yes, rotating the TS coordinates is simpler than panel rotation,
since much less information must be rotated. I just mentioned
TS, since the _default_ orientation should be the same for both.
In the end both must be rotated at the same time (and thus both
must support rotation).
