Muttley-touch requests are being handled on the new bug tracker: https://github.com/mypaint/mypaint/issues/427

Keyboard+drag support for rotation need further discussion. First try binding the buttons you want in v1.2.0's preferences to "Rotate View". If I add a Shift+Ctrl+Button1 binding there, it seems to work for me.

(Future bugs must now be reported bua the Github issue tracker)

That would be an awesome addition, definitely.

Another thought for the future:

If there's any thought to supporting multi-touch in any form (either now or in the future), this is the sort of thing it works very well with. With two input points you can combine pinch-to-zoom and rotation, to get resize, move, and rotate all in a single gesture.

Reference: autodesk's mobile Sketchbook app does this quite well with its layer transforms.

Basically, you know how in MyPaint, you can create an ellipse and you can press/hold "Shift" to rotate it and "Alt" to maintain an aspect ratio?
Well, what I was thinking was that with the move tool, you can press/hold "shift" to rotate the contents of the layer. It would be extremely useful and greatly appreciated.
