So, how precisely would this work?  Would it just split the
background-box in half/quarters, take whatever would normally display
in the half/quarter indicated, and mirror that around?

Background-flip would need a way to specify which half it's supposed
to use.  I sort of like background-mirror.

Don't actually need to do that.  Just size it normally and only
specify out to 50%.  Background-mirror would automatically take care
of anything that went past the halfway point (by overwriting it with
the mirrored version).
