  mouse pointer should flip horizontally when mouse orientation is left-

Bug description:
  I'm running Ubuntu Dapper Drake Flight 6 + updates. When the mouse is
  set to left-handed, the mouse pointer is not affected visually by the
  setting so it continues to point the same direction (slightly to the
  left). I think that the mouse pointer should be reversed so that it
  points slightly to the right when the mouse is set to left-handed.

  The ideal solution whould be to automatically flip the relevant mouse
  pointers horizontally on-the-fly so that regardless of the pointer
  theme they are reversed when the mouse orientation is set to left-
  handed. However, some pointers in a theme would need to remain
  unaffected (like left/right window resize) which complicates the
  implementation of this solution.

  Another solution would be to ship two pointer themes: The default
  theme plus a slightly modified, left-handed variation of the default
  theme in which the affected pointers have been flipped horizontally.
  This is probably the most simple solution to implement for Dapper.
