When placing components such as passives (mainly R's and C's) you come
across the common problem that you draw the symbol either horizontally

orientations, but generally it's either 0deg rot (horizontal) or 90deg
rot (vertical).

This is called Schematic symbol alternatives - usually you only need 2 versions (bridge circuits need a 45 makes 3 versions) - most CAD systems have this - and its nice. I added this to my wiki's wish list.
