[texhax] rotating a glyph in pdfTeX?

I can't find an answer to this question, so it's time to visit the house of
the TeX gurus....

Is there a way in plain TeX (specifically, pdfTeX) to invert a single instance
of a particular glyph? I thought that pstricks might be able to do this, but
the complete pstricks-doc.pdf file doesn't seem to be readily available, at
least not anywhere I've looked.

To make the question crystal clear (I hope): I want to be able to typeset, in
pdfTeX, something like the sentence fragment "It was a Y", but with the "Y"
upside down (i.e., rotated through 180°). I recognize that some
micro-adjustment might be necessary to the vertical positioning of the box
containing the glyph.

I'm sure there are answers to this rather basic question somewhere on the
Internet, but I can't find them :-(
