Well, at least for SOME kinds of documents all that would be required 
would be to understand where the margins are.  But point taken.  That's 
why I didn't think it too likely.

I probably should have said why I wanted it: to be able to select and 
copy across page boundaries.  (Lots of solutions manuals these days are 
provided as pdfs.  In preparing solutions for just a given set of 
problems I have to spend a lot of time copying problems split across 
pages.)  It gets to be a drag after a while.  Reader and Preview will 
let you copy just TEXT in such a view, but won't let you SELECT 
(including e.g. equations) across page boundaries.

Thanks for the suggestion.  Unfortunately, while it does ok with text, 
it's hopeless with equations in pdfs, at least 2.0a2 is.  Perhaps that 
will improve!
