AIUI it was accepted that 2.18 had no way to set a score
in a rotated orientation without rotating the paper as well.
The problem wasn't that LP lacked the commands, but it used
them incorrectly. Unfortunately, some people had come to rely
on 'landscape rotating the paper, particularly as there were
even templates that assumed this.

Now, 2.22 handles the arguments reasonably consistently: the
first selects the paper, and the second, the optional 'landscape,
rotates the printing anticlockwise by 90°. (The examples have
their arguments annotated as markup.)
