There are probably much better solutions, so maybe wait for another answer...

...but the first approach that comes to mind would be:

-Bake all animated objects to a single point cache.
-Import point cache onto objects
-Mirror objects just like you mirrored your .obj geometry.

Great pointcache script, will bake all selected objects to a single cache:

If everything needs to be flipped, can't you just flip the final-render in post-production?
