XY flip in PCB is dangerous!

**BUG** Concise problem statement: ‘X’ and ‘Y’ flip operations in the PCB canvas can cause layout errors. It is necessary to be able to rotate a component on a PCB layout but it makes no sense to try to flip (mirror) a physical component *on the same layer* of a PCB. ‘X’ or ‘Y’ flipping a footprint on a top layer has the same effect as shifting the footprint to the bottom layer *except that it is still on the top layer*. This can easily confuse the user. It may lead to major routing and layout errors. These errors may not be detected by the DRC. I'd like to suggest that either; (i) ‘X’ and ‘Y’ flip operations in the PCB canvas are disabled, OR (ii) ‘X’ and ‘Y’ flip operations in the PCB canvas have the same effect as switching from top to bottom layers, i.e. for a component on the top, X or Y => B and for a component on the bottom, X or Y => T Steps to reproduce bug: 1. Select any whole footprint on the top layer; 2. Press X or Y; Results: Note that footprint looks like it should now be on the bottom layer but is in fact still on the top layer. Expected results: Either no effect or footprint should switch to bottom layer with 180 degree rotation so that the effect is the same as pressing the B Hotkey.
