We almost got there, but like I said...not reliable enough. Maybe one of you clever folks can find a good use for it.

I can't imagine it would be that hard to add a Settings option that controls how the accelerometer is interpreted. For instance, the user could set the accelerometer to reorient LCD only, or e-ink only, or both in the same way (if it's in the two screen book layout), or both opposite (if the screens are folded back on each other), or neither screen (which is the "setting" we have now).
