should work just fine. And if you want to transform the point values
themselves, then that should be straightforward. (Just apply the
transformation matrix that corresponds to the translation/rotation to
each of the coordinate pairs in points="".)

Just stumbled upon an alternative proposal for doing just that, both in 2D and 3D. According to the author, it seems quite fast when compared to other algorithms, so here it is:
