HVL F58AM swivel head question

I'm the owner of a F42AM and has just gotten a F58AM. Because wireless HSS is disabled when the flash is in a bounce position, one useful thing about the head of the 42 is that it can be rotated laterally 90 degrees to each side (in the horizontal position) which is useful when I use wireless HSS in daylight (so that I can have the 42AM's light sensor partly face the commanding flash which helps in bright daylight).  I realize this kind of rotation is not possible on the F58AM which means the 58's sensor always faces away from the commanding flash. Can anyone think of a solution or have opinions to add? I'm using a 20AM on a NEX-6 but I think it should work the same way as the onboard flash on an SLR/SLT.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-F5 Sony Alpha NEX-6
