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
