I've seen numerous people make the same request and although I don't
use a rotor myself, I do agree support for it should be included in
vanilla VDR as it's a basic common function & equipment.  I'll guess
that if enough people reply to this thread that Klaus may add it to
his TODO list (assuming it isn't there already).

I'm sure if Klaus decides to implement this, he'll do it in such a way
that makes the most sense & flexibile usability to maximize the
benefit of adding it.  No point in adding more functionality if you
leave it crippled. :)
