probably needs to be updated, but you can post-process the xsl-fo
produced by (a customization of) the docbook xsls using Ken Holman's
psmi stylesheets <http://www.cranesoftwrights.com/resources/psmi/> to
landscape things as long as they aren't deep in the resulting fo tree.
E.g. if you could make the table the direct child of a chapter or
appendix, it would work, but wouldn't work for tables in sections:

Hope that helps,
