Makes sense -- please file the bug if you'd like to see it.

The way to switch currently is with xrandr, but:

1. you will also have to change the touchscreen use (xinput
--map-to-output <number> DSI-1) -- I think it's DSI-1, anyway, also,
maybe DSI-1 comes because <number>)
2. There are rendering bugs in hildon-desktop in portrait mode that make
it not very usable. These are also being fixed, hopefully soon.
