Rotating Tic-80 screen

Is there a way to rotate the Tic-80 screen, similar to the coin-op games like Xevious, Galaga, and Galaxian?

You're just looking to change the aspect ratio?  I don't think there's a built in way, the height/width appear to be hardcoded in include/tic80.h.  It doesn't look like it would be that hard to swap them and recompile, although I'm not sure if the UI could adapt.

Not a proper suggestion, but I remember for some crt games the suggestion was to turn the display on it's side.  A number of monitors also have stands that rotation - you'd need to 

I was thinking along the lines of a console command that would flip the fantasy console vertically and horizontally.  Perhaps a language function could do the same thing.
