Reversed breadcrumbs as Page Title

On some sites that we have built we reverse the breadcrumbs to make the page title... so if the breadcrumbs for a page where "Web Solutions » E-Commerce" in the page title we would have "E-Commerce | Web Solutions | Site Name etc"

Is there a way to do this in SilverStripe without too much hassle.

You can just go on the code from the Breadcrumbs() function (located in sapphire/core/model/SiteTree.php). Copy this code to your Page class in mysite/code/Page.php
and might be something like

public function ReservedBreadcrumbs($maxDepth = 20, $unlinked = false, $stopAtPageType = false, $showHidden = false) {
      $page = $this;
      $parts = array();
      $i = 0;
         && (!$maxDepth || sizeof($parts) < $maxDepth)
         && (!$stopAtPageType || $page->ClassName != $stopAtPageType)
      ) {
         if($showHidden || $page->ShowInMenus || ($page->ID == $this->ID)) {
            $parts[] = $page->Title;
         $page = $page->Parent;

      return implode(' | ', $parts);

Then just try $ReservedBreadcrumbs in the template
