Here is the patch for November 19, 2011:

What’s the use of knowing about the transform() function without actually having any fun with it? This patch uses the XY and YX segments of the transform to give a seasick, psuedo-3D movement to the drawn rectangles. Pretty basic, but also pretty interesting.

I make a special note of drawing outside the visible area, and letting the transform expose part of the drawn space that you otherwise wouldn’t see. If you are doing crazy animations, remember to draw out stuff that may not initially be visible, but will show up after transformation, translation or rotation.
