When setting the ModelView matrix you normally go through several transformations from the identity matrix. for example:

glRotatef(270.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f);
glTranslatef(-rect.size.height / 2, -rect.size.width / 2, 0.0f);

Instead of doing those operations one after the other (assume there are more than two), wouldn't it be more efficient to simply pre-calculate the resulting matrix and set the ModelView matrix to this manual matrix?
