OK, nice to know. That command can also be scripted through GUI  
scripting, and has the advantage that the page doesn't revert to page  
1 / screen flicker because this script simply closes and then reopens  
the file - although it seems preview now remembers your last location  
in a pdf file.

In any case: progress.
