Hello! I have the following problem with pdfinfo: it shows page size, but doesn't show page rotation.
The reported width/height is same for portrait/landscape images, although they render correctly. But you cannot use width/height reported by pdfinfo, because they may be swapped due to rotation.
There are several discussions of this on the web, for example, http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=485453 even contains simple perl script to extract page rotation.

Patch for pdfinfo to report rotated page size
Personally I would prefer if you added a new field "Page Rotation:". I know it will probably make life a bit harder for you but i prefer if we do not modify existing behaviour of a tool

Shows page rotation in addition to page size
I agree that changing existing behaviour could cause all kinds of problems for people. Adding page rotation as another output field is preferable.
Page 1 size: 595 x 842 pts (A4)
Page 1 rot: 90
Page 2 size: 595 x 842 pts (A4)
Page 2 rot: 90
Commited, will be in poppler 0.20
Thanks for the fix!
I agree with you that showing page rotation is far more compatible than changing output. :)
