Are the LUTs really different?  Ages ago when I made something like
this I used only 90 degrees of the table. That is all you need.  The
other 270 degrees can be made by flipping or inverting.  I assume that
what's stored is neither.  It is data that needs to be interpeted
based on the current quadrant.  But the author might choose to call it
which ever makes the most sense.
