No, I don't have such a sample, you're right, probably it is not common.

But I guess there are other - more commonly used - examples.

Another reason why I prefer things the way they are now is that if 
eventually ffplay will support SDL2, rotation will be cheap, because the 
video will be a proper texture, and this also means that auto rotation 
will be done at the end of the filter chain...
