While it is very simple to do the -sPages type of thing for PDF (and probably
XPS) where the document has a page oriented structure, doing this in a more
general fashion for PS or PCL would require the use of the 'saved page' type
of mechanism which would work for 'gx_device_printer' sub-class devices that
use the clist. This (plus other advanced features such as imposition, tiling
and
copy collation) was part of what I used at CalComp.

We are planning on discussing saved page design at the next staff meeting.

Handling page reordering in the pdfwrite also wouldn't be too difficult
(and might be possible for ps2write since the temp files are assembled
when the device closes).
