### thumby package and vertical text

I'm using thumby package for tabs and it works fine. However, I'd like to use vertical text saying "chapter #"

Using the rotating package will result in errors trying to format the text.

I can use commands like \fontsize etc. to change the appearance.
Is there a way around this to get it vertical -a hack or a change in the style sheet-
`\usepackage{thumby}\thumbySides{two}\thumbyTotalChapters{10}\thumbyPageHeight{795}\thumbyThumbWidth{42.5}\thumbyForeground{white}\thumbyBackground{black}\thumbyNumberFormat{\Huge\textbf{\$chapter  number}}\thumbySetup`

Its a perltex package and I have no knowledge of Perl.
thanks

stylesheet is included; how can I in an easy way modify it for support of vertical text?

Edit by localghost: Attaching a whole package file is not necessary at all in this case. And especially not in the code environment. A simple link to the thumby entry on CTAN is enough.
