Thanks, I will take a look.

Windows can calculate and use transformation matrices without D2D as
well, it's really quite simple.  You calculate the matrix elements,
and then call a function to install it for the next BitBlt.

What advantages would that give us?  Wouldn't it be better to support
higher-level abstractions for the transformations, like scaling,
rotation, and shear?
