Why is that tricky?

But the .fnt format is Rockbox-unique isn't it?

No, it just seems unnecessary.

If we for whatever reason decide to have the .fnt bitmaps rotated as they are
now, then I would instead suggest that we do the rotation on load-time. To
me, it seems silly to rotate them every time we want to show them on screen.
