Maybe chop off the first and last sample of the reversed take before gluing? I guess I've never tried it in anything critical, but I can't see any reason it wouldn't work, and possibly better than trying to crossfade.
Room tone is just an example to demo where the flaw is (as opposed to just preventing clicks in music loops). I can easily do normal edits with crossfades, and currently have to. I use the reverse "loop" method a lot as-is.

But doing design, I loop all kinds of sources which are more drastic than room tones, and making the loop source function sound smoother would really make my tasks faster and better.
