   I'd be very interested to hear more about this.

   I have used psmi, but it has a very serious restriction - it only works  
for tables and sections that are immediate children of chapter (or  
article). This is insufficient - I need to rotate tables and sections on  
all levels.
   I suppose psmi could be tweaked to handle this, but even the current  
implementation that allows rotation of "top level" sections and tables is  
quite involved. I'd prefer something simpler.
