Default twinview+xrandr: how to rotate only one monitor?

I've just got an LCD panel to add to my CRT monitor. I've got them working with the new 7174 driver and TwinView. I can use xrandr to rotate both monitors, but how do I rotate only one monitor? (xrandr only seems to operate on the two screens combined).

For now, you're out of luck. The RandR extension can only talk to the X server about screens, currently. If you want to rotate the two monitors independently, you're going to have to set them up as two separate X screens.

Set your CRT on its side, and smile because NVidia has included RandR support!
