Given a 'ab123cd' string, a simple reverse will get me cd321ba

That is quite an unusual requirement. If I may ask, what do you
need that for?
Good question - I can think of one possibility - if the string is
overloaded with multiple values - region, district, area (not good
examples, I know), then there may be a desire to leave certain items
in situ and swap others for some reason.
Which raises for me the thought that this is VERY specific to a local
requirement and doesn't line up well for generalization. If the
string were 'a1b2c3d', then by Gad's requirement, reversing alpha
only would be 'd1c2b3a'.
