Switched page forward/back buttons?

Reading in the train to work today, and I had to wonder:

How hard would it be to switch the forward and back buttons (purely from a software PoV, I don't want to carve up the actual device) on the side of the nook? So that the top buttons would then be the forward buttons and the lower ones the back buttons?
I ask, because when holding the nook confortably, in either hand, my thumb is right on the back button, which I very rarely use.

Sorry posted too soon.

Seems this has been dealt with already, and it's really easy to do:

So I guess I know what I'll be trying this evening

Will this impact the firmware force-upgrade process? Current to force an upgrade, you need to keep the top right button pressed while restarting.

I'm going to guess not. At the point when the keystroke for a force-update is scanned, the nook is still under the control of the SPL bootloader (I'm guessing) and the Android OS (which controls how user interface happens) hasn't loaded yet. The keymap would be loaded later on in the whole boot process.
