How do I enable RTL (Right-to-Left) layout for JWPlayer?

Our site uses a lot of different languages, some of them are RTL ones. When I enable the 'direction: rtl' CSS rule for my site, JWPlayer doesn't seem to respect this. I'm looking to have something similar to what Flow Player is doing on their end when dealing with RTL languages:

Can JWPlayer achieve this as well? If so, how do I do that?

Thank you.

We don’t currently have a way to invert the player and its text, however this has been passed on to our player team to see if something like this can be implemented in a future version.

I do see this on your June 2013 changelog for version 6.5 though:

Fix: Embedding of JW Player on pages that have a "direction:rtl" CSS rule.

What does this fix pertain to?

I believe that this was a fix, that allowed the player to render correctly in this scenario, not a feature enhancement that allowed the player to render according to this style.
