Ion-list swipe from left to right: without framework mods

Ionic v1 allows for swiping a list from right to left but not the other way around. From what I see, this feature was discussed for v1 but never made it in (its in v2+)

Is there a way to introduce this feature without making core framework changes (there are solutions that implement a directive but also need core changes)? I want to avoid changes that might get overwritten in a lib update of ionic.
