Ok, I found back the issue with animation you are referring to

(earlier in this thread)

That is assuming that 0deg points up and 90deg points right-wards. Most designers I know are more familiar with the Photoshop gradients (0deg is right-wards). That point has been made by Brad, vocally. And I support him in this.

I mean, I don't really see what the issue with animation or transition is.
