It can only be specified at startup.  I don't think it was ever
possible to do this from inside a running Emacs session.  That's why
you won't find the 'reverse frame parameter documented, neither in the
Emacs User Manual nor in the ELisp Manual.

(Note that currently, i.e. in Emacs 23, even the -rv command-line
argument is broken.  I guess not many people actually use it.)
