This is actually a lot of work for a very simple operation. All you really need
to do is negate the right vector in the camera, thusly:

camera {
    perspective
    location POS
    up y
    right -x*(image_height/image_width)
    look_at TGT
}

where POS and TGT are the position and focal points.  Make sure your camera is
pointed in the -z direction, and presto-chango: right-handed coords.
