(AL5) Drawing rotated text?

I was wondering if AL5 had a way to draw rotated TTF text since I think the glyphs are cached to a bitmap. I know that it can be rendered to a transparent bitmap then rotated but I was wondering if maybe there was a simpler solution? Maybe AL5.1 could have al_draw_rotated_text which would work similarly to bitmap rotation?

You have two options I think, draw to another bitmap and rotate that, or use the Transformations api.
