Possible, yes - you just negate the forces and pretend that time is 
negative. Useful, no - you will not be able to follow a system forward 
in time and then take it back to the starting point because the system 
representation and the integration algorithm are both finite-precision. 
I'm not sure whether the ensemble formed from negating the forces has 
any physically-meaningful interpretation.
