RTL reading site setting

Description

Have a setting on the site which can switch the whole site to RTL and include a RTL style sheet to be used site wide by default.

Then on a each edit post/page have it so that the RTL can be unset in case any of the RTL lanuagues want to write a page in a LTR lanuague such as english.

If we were going to take it one step further, also request that there is a method to switch between LTR and RTL from within the content. This could be a shortcode for LTR / RTL for people to use. The use case for this is when they are doing a two lanuague post, AKA, half of the post being RTL and half being LTR.

Currently WordCamps which are in a RTL lanuague are having to add a RTL css file every year. I think this can be made easier for them.

Hey Jenny,

Do you envision this being much different than a plugin like this one: https://wordpress.org/plugins/rtl-tester/ ?

Might this be a good case for developing a feature plugin and/or augmenting an existing plugin like the one above?

Can you show some examples of what's being done? I looked at Israel 2014 and it doesn't look like they had to do anything, since Core automatically adds <body dir="rtl"> for RTL locales.

I think that can already be done with <div dir="{ rtl | ltr }">.
