you could swap which source files were used for left+right in the
track. everything else would follow.

its actually a per-region edit. here's a sample region description:

 <Region id="169" name="Luis Junior - Urban Woman" start="0"
length="15965096" position="1873920" ancestral-start="0"
ancestral-length="0" stretch="1" shift="1" first_edit="id" layer="0"
scale-gain="1" source-0="134" source-1="136" channels="2"
master-source-0="134" master-source-1="136">

Where it specifies:


you could just swap the referenced source file IDs and be done. do the
same with master-source-0 and master-source-1 unless you want suprises
if you did various ops that rely on these.
