Thanks to the great work on the SVG backend, I was able to do a test.

I rotated the clef by 1, 2.5, and 5 degrees.

Surprisingly, I could see small differences.  I'd think somewhere
between 1 and 2.5 degrees would be about right.  I like the 2.5 degrees
best at the top of the clef, but I think the tail needs to be adjusted
a little bit to look right at 2.5 degrees.

Even the 1 degree rotation appears better balanced IMO.
