A check of Google groups:
turned up an unanswered query from 1994 and a possible solution from
2000, which at least in theory allows you to mirror the characters as
you said you'd like to be able to do.
If a *TeX option doesn't work out, a fall-back choice might be
Mellel, which added boustrophedon capability in mid-2003:
Also, it's not quite what you're looking for and I'm probably the
least-qualified person on the list to offer advice on it, but I
believe that vim might let you (relatively?) easily switch back and
forth from L-R/R-L - this might be more than you'd want to deal with,
unless of course you're already conversant with the program.
