That sounds good.  That means we don't have to describe one of the "allowed"
orientations as "the one that will be forced right now", even though
presumably it would be the first listed.  It also gives us more wiggle room,
perhaps allowing platforms to support "allowed" rotations without supporting
"force it right now" rotations.  Easier to describe the platform deviations
that way - the function works or doesn't, not half-way.  It also means we
can have a corresponding getter, to get the current orientation, keeping
everything simple and symmetric.

// get the current rotation, returns 0|90|...

// set the current rotation, value is 0|90|...

// get the current allowed rotations, returns array of 0|90|...

// set the current allowed rotations, value is array of 0|90|...
