Manipulate digits to generate year

Here are two neat ways of using the digits, in proper or reverse
order, to generate the current year:
10+(9*8*(7/6)*5*4)+321 = 2011
How could you write a Mathematica program to derive these?  If
you wanted to do something similar, but to generate a different year
(e.g., 2012), how could you do that?
