Yes, and just to pull a shameless plug, in order to promote the use of
ClanLib ;-), it provides an incredible hack as a layer2 component called
a convex polygon surface provider, which makes it possible to warp a
surface onto a polygon, which in effect makes it
possible to write a _very simple_ surface-wrapper, which dynamically
rotates/scales/flips a surface (although it will most likely be slow
because it dynamically generates a new surface for each blit).
