Ken: I am sure that what you are describing is possible using postscript, but
it's beyond most users (certainly, I wouldn't be able to do it easily, and I
count myself as above averagely technically competent).

Having a 'simple' mechanism to achieve the result seems like a win to me.

alexcher: No customer has asked yet, as far as I know, but we had a user asking
for it yesterday.

Using a 2 stage process might be suitable for a hack, but it's not as nice as
being able to do it directly. (Does going to DSC postscript and back lose us
transparency or metadata for instance?)

ray: I appreciate that it may not be possible for all languages (or may not be
possible trivially, or using the same mechanism at least), but having a
standard way of specifying the pages we want seems sensible.
