I was able to do it simply in 99SE.  Just select the entire board,
everything.  Then click and hold something on the board, and hit "x".  It
will warn you that you are about to flip a component to the other side of
the board, and that you shouldn't do this ...  Click yes to continue, and
there's your entire board, flipped.

Umm, probably better to do this to a copy ...
