AFAIK 2D matrix transformations (rotate, scale,
etc.) are missing in the underlying GEOS library
that the Shapely uses. Personally I have needed the
transformations and have been doing them manually -
that is, applying the rotate and scale formulas on
the individual points of a polygon and then re-
constructing the polygon. This is not a quick operation
in pure Python and I assume that it should be much
faster when using GEOS with C/C++ (where you may have
direct access to polygon point).
