Is there such a thing as a reverse direction Clone tool?

Select clone ending point (ALT click)
Move to where you want to begin cloning
The tool moves in the opposite direction

For instance I want to clone the left eye to the right (try it)
Otherwise the only way is to copy, paste and flip.

Use the clone source palette, and enter a negative number for the scaling or use the handy "reverse" buttons by the width and height scaling.
