yes, indeed, really!

you see how very tired I must be at the moment; otherwise I wouldn't spend time for this (a function that shouldn't be used), but anyway I did....

I've worked on Paul's pie90() and on Kati's extra-wish to produce a version of standard pie() that allows Kati and Lars (and whoever) to produce pie()s starting at an arbitrary angle and go clockwise instead of the usual ``mathematically positive'' direction.

Look for this (+ documentation) in a few days "in R-devel". Martin
