Looking at the code in the shell script simpdftex, I get the  
impression the addition of another option --distiller-opts would be  
the only solution, by mimicking --extratexopts and --extradvipsopts,  

- At line 324, add:


- At lines 533 and 538, replace:



	"${distillerprog}" ${distiller-options}

- Update the usage information accordingly.

I'm not sure that would work (especially in combination with -- 
distiller-filter), given my limited understanding of programming, but  
that might be worth trying: modify simpdftex as above, then try:

	simpdftex latex --maxpfb --distiller-opts="-dAutoRotatePages=/None"
