Default rotate with nvidia driver

I am assisting a professor at our university with some research that he is going to be doing. We are going to be purchasing some computers in the near future and were hoping to use nVidia graphics cards under Linux, but I don't know if they can do what we need. First of all the graphics needs to be hardware accelerated so from the looks of it we'll have to use nVidia's closed source drivers for that. Second we'll be outputting to two LCD projectors to pretty much fill a wall with our display. That isn't a problem with TwinView or Xinerama. The third requirement is the problem, we want both of the displays to be rotated 90 degrees. i.e. We want an effective resolution of 2048x1280 not 2568x1024 or 1280x2048.
I have seen a couple of other requests for rotation with nVidia driver, but no positive responses so far. Is this possible or will it be possible in the near future?
If not, does anybody know how to do it with any other hardware?

Thank in advance,
Michael "Murph" Robbert
