The way the default circle_text macro is currently written, it's
difficult to model text where the serifs are aligned to the y-axis and 
the object bends as if it's wrapped around a vertical cylinder (with the 
default macro, the text lays flat on the z-plane). So I
modified it by adding another parameter.

To use, write one more value at the end of the macro, specifiying the
vertical angle of the letters. -90 results in a "normal" alignment 
(right side up),
90 makes it upside down. 0 gives the same result as the unmodified macro.

Just replace your default shapes.inc with the attached file.
