Thanks for the suggestion, Adam.  I don't think pdfpages is quite what  
I'm looking for, as it seems to require a two step process: (1) call  
pdflatex on the document I'm working on (2) call pdflatex on a second  
small document with a single \includepdf command that inserts the  
output of (1) and renders it two pages per sheet.  The nice things  
about 2in1 is that it creates the 2x1 output directly, enabling you to  
preview your output in Skim (or whatever) as you work as usual with C- 
c C-c.  My hack of 2in1 does that as well, but I just don't know how  
to get those page numbers properly centered, as their location doesn't  
appear to be controlled by any of the parameters in 2in1.sty.

Thanks again.

See, not so hard. Oh, and yes, hijacking a thread is a mail list  
policy violation. I know. I helped write the policy. OK, I wrote  
almost all of it.

Oh, top quoting is really annoying too. Try reading these messages in  
the archives. You'll get nauseous trying to figure out the order of  
the conversation.

Because we don't read that way, and unless it becomes the new  
standard, then things get all interwoven and unreadable.

It's annoying.


The conversation is backwards.


It's confusing.

Why not top quote?
