Given a flex layout where the sidebar and the main content are flex items
in the same flex container, and a way of styling elements based on whether
they are on a left or right page, I'd add 'order:-1;' to .sidebar styling
on :left pages and 'order:1;' to .sidebar styling on :right pages.

That's what Lea was originally asking for. I think it would be a good
thing to add. I think float:outside/inside are fine as well. But a general
mechanism for styling content on left/right pages would be better than
adding special-case values to each property you might want to change
depending on the spread location.
