Any easy way to rotate a 2D graphic about it's center by an arbitrary 
number of degrees _after_ I've created it?  

I'd like to lay out and program the graphics in a certain set of x,y 
coordinates where the equations and formulas are simplest -- then rotate 
and display it in a rotated set of x',y' = Horiz,Vert coordinates.  I 
can of course do the transformations "by hand" as I go along -- but  
it's just a messy process.

Illustrator can do it, instantly, with an EPS graphic.  Sure would be 
nice if Mathematica could?
