The current background drawing on rotated label items in the composer should be improved. Right now, the rotation applies to the text, but the background simply grows to cover a rectangular area, instead of having the background rotating along the text. I've attached a screenshot showing the issue, as well as a dummy project. There are three labels shown:
1. Simple label with no rotation showing correct background fill
2. Simple label with 45 degrees rotation showing wrong background fill
3. Label rendering HTML code relying on CSS transform to showcase what IMO should happen when labels are rotated

This ain't a blocker.
