When the tabs on a JTabbedPane are placed on the left or right side, it
would be nice if the text and icons were rotated 90 degrees one way or
the other to take up less space. Ideally this would work on Java 5.
Most approaches I have seen involve extending JTabbedPane to use a
custom rotated icon in the tabs. Whenever JTabbedPane.setTitleAt() is
called, the icon is updated. Is there an easier way to accomplish
that? I was hoping there might be a preference we could set in the UI
