... it is the XXI century after all, and both OSX and Windows seem to have no issue with performing a simple coordinate transformation.

I am not sure what your setup is specifically, but xrandr has worked pretty well for a while. Either use the command line program xrandr or your desktop environment's control panel for displays. The article mentions new features in the latest release for fancier transforms than just rotations and flips.

I have a dual landscape-portrait monitor setup, both nvidia and ati accelerated drivers refuse to work with xrandr.

I would not mind trading compiz glitz for proper multidisplay behavior. Ever since the days of xinerama it has been a mess in x.org (nee xfree) land...
