As I already managed to work around this issue (using a simple ruler) I
thought I'd place a different feature request instead  :-)
I am 'doing' an old NATO airbase which has three hangar locations with
oval taxiways around (a very common layout). I create these ovals from
straigt taxiways and a circle cut in half. Such a half circle is made
from lots of small taxiway sections. Now I'd need six of these half
circles and each of them has a different orientation. It is easy to
group these small sections but there is no function to enter a rotation
angle in order to transform the whole group around its center - like it
is present for a single taxiway.

Would be nice, if feasible,
 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
