Rotate display -- Option "Rotate" "CCW"


I am able to rotate my displays 90degrees using the Device section option:

Option "Rotate" "CCW"

and get the cursor to also rotate with

Option "SWCursor" "On"

Now, since with everything, that isn't enough for me, I was wondering does anyone know of an option or setting to keep the screens rotated 90 degrees but to have Screen1 be Right Of Screen0 rather than be orientated to the bottom of Screen0. I don't mind having to mouse down to come to the top of Screen1 but I have two computers each with dual head setups, one horizontal, one vertical, and I just keep by default trying to move right on the vert mons ;-)

Thanks in advance
