Why not rotate the oval, and work out the clipping region from that?

clip: oval(Xcentre, Ycentre, height, width, deg)

height and width would be the original before rotation, and the "deg" is the
number of degrees to rotate from there. Makes sense to me, and follows the kind
of logic to be found in vector packages, where one draws an object, rotates it,
and (say, in Quark) would use that to make a clipping of an image.
