Rotating points dynamically with Editor widget

Hi all,

Is there a way to dynamically rotate a point, in much the same way as lines and polygons can be rotated via the editor widget? (e.g. polygons but not points can be rotated in this example http://help.arcgis.com/en/webapi/javascript/arcgis/demos/ed/ed_editing_widget.html )

I can rotate a point via setting an 'angle' attribute in ArcMap for rotation, and then editing the value in the attribute editor, but this seems very clunky compared to the dynamic rotation available for lines and polygons. 

I realize for circular points this would be useless, but I am using a PictureMarkerSymbol for arrows which point in various directions, and with attribute editing it is very difficult to quickly pick the direction you want the arrow to point.

Thanks for the help
