yeah, but i'd then have to rotate my monitor back to use the console :)
i know, couldn't each window have a pixmap created that contains the titlebar
text, so you write and rotate the text into the pixmap, copy it to the window's
titlebar and then show the app in the window (since most things take a while
to load the extra time for rotating and copying shouldn't slow it down too much)

it might go wonky with transient windows that don't stay alive for a long time
(like the gimp progress windows) but it could be a database attribute like
WindowListSkip that you add for the windows you want it on.

did that make any sense? (does to me)
