If no tier one platforms are using it, I can understand your request, but at
the same time we are not removing symbian features, are we?
The thing that caught my attention is your statement that no tier-one
platforms implement it. At minimum we should have a bugreport for that, since
as far as I can see such support is pretty essential for good UIs. Especially
for those that don't believe in QML, but want to use graphicsview. (like me)
Unless I'm missing something and QGraphicsView can already easilly be auto-
rotated on device rotation.
Sorry, more questions than answers...
