Default Rotation of only one screen (with TwinView)


I'm the lucky owner of two screens. One of them can even rotate. I'm using TwinView with xinerama.

Unfortunately, I can't find a way to tell the nvidia driver to rotate only the rotable screen. xrandr will rotate everything or nothing :-( Is there any way to rotate only one screen? Does anyone know if the windows version of the driver permits such thing or is there any hardware limitation (I doubt about this) ?

One way to express it would be through metamodes, a special word to specify the rotation, like for the position or the frequency. For instance one could write for two screens of 1280x1024 which can either be seen both normal or one rotated to the left (ol) and one normal:
Option "MetaModes" "DFP-0:1280x1024, CRT-0:1280x1024; DFP-0: 1024x1280 ol, CRT-0: 1280x1024"

Would it be possible to implement this kind of option if it doesn't exist yet?
