I have some graphics generated by showing several 2d plots, and I would like
to be able to spin these about a specified point.  This is very easy if
everything has been generated using primitives like Line, Point, etc.  What
I would like to be able to do is to take an entire image that can be viewed
using "Show" and rotate it by r radians about the point {x,y}.  Something


would then produce the graphic with everything (including the axes, labels,
etc.) rotated.

Any suggestions?  I would be happy if this were obvious.
