Issue description
Item 640 imported from sourceforge.net tracker on 2013-01-28 20:23:02

A very minor problem, but still annoying. The monomolecular knife cannot be moved from the belt to the backpack and placed horizontally, it's possible in vertical orientation only. Screenshot attached.

It is rather a missing feature than a bug. And equipping rotated is possible, but yes annoying: you need to place other items in the way temporary to force rotation.

Added possibility to equip items rotated - for base inventory screen yet (battlescape handles things bit differently, needs more work).

To add rotated item press Shift while Drag-n-Dropping. (Shift is hardcoded ATM, but will possible make it binded (configurable) later)

Maybe it worths adding the feature to quickEquip (Shift+Right Click) too, I'll check it.
