Tom has left a note in footprint_editor_tools.cpp:402:
"// ignore the pad orientation and offset for the moment. Makes more trouble than it's worth."

A quick look around confirms that there are a number of issues that would need to be addressed to allow rotated/offset anchor pads in the primitive list.

Based on this, I'm pushing this request to v6
