What do you really want that?  It has nothing to do with
right-to-left.  What you want is an inversed order for the menus,
as in right-to-left languages, right-to-left menus are normal,
not left-to-right.

Not that I know of. File a feature request on bugzilla if you
really really need that, but again, I'm not seeing the reason.
