inverting axes in any plot

I would like to know if anyone out there has written extensions for
the normal plotting functions that allow plot axes to be inverted,
so that the maximum is on the left side and the axis runs in descending
order to the minimum. This is one that's been bugging me for a long time.
I have searched MathSource without luck.
Does anyone know if Mathematica 3.0 perhaps supports something like this?
Browsing the wolfram website gave me disappointingly few details on
Mma 3.0's real improvements.
There should be an option in EVERY plot routine, like :
AxesOrder = {Ascending, Descending}

Of course for many purposes I can simply play with the numbers and
invert the display of data or functions that way, but this is undesirable
for two reasons: (1) the inverted variable is no longer the
independent variable you really want to show, so the numbers are wrong,
and (2) in log plots you can't simple use the negative of a value to change
the direction.

If anyone has any possible help for this problem, please let me know
(respond also via email, please)
