True, but I don't think I'd want to use up the space to do it that way. One of the advantages of Robb's system is that it is compact. Besides, I don't see how it's much harder to have a pivoting engine, since the motor mounts need to be relatively elastic anyhow.

It is also possible to reverse the direction of rotation with a v-belt and four sheaves.
My old Corvair car's fan was driven by a long V-belt that twisted 90 degrees on two "direction-changing" pulleys positioned in between the drive pulley and the fan pulley, thus changing the rotation from horizontal to vertical. If the belt stayed on the intermediate pulleys for an additional 90 degrees it would have resulted in a full 180 degree change in rotation.
