	Hmm. That might work. It *does* make subcaptioning rather difficult, it seems. Are there other routes? Or should I just accept an ugly page break?

The rotating package would allow the {sidewaysfigure} environment, but that doesn't seem to like the subfig package (the subfigs stop acting like subfigs, and are put in the sidewaysfigure environment without theInternational Relations subcaptions and such formatting properly). The pdflscape package turns everything nicely, but it puts a rather ugly break in the text, since it forces a new page exactly wherever one places the figure; that is, the text in my cas stops one third of the way down the page, leaving white space, and then it prints the figure of subfigures.
