I have a problem about stickers and imposition;
there's a special x/y one for stickers
Ok, no code, only an example of the problem.
Let S a pdf with 17 pages; let S(0) the first page, and S(16) the last page.
Let T the "target pdf" with 8 box which each will cointain an S(j), j=0..16
I draw now a simple schema for an empty pages of T
       
After 'imposing' , T should be T(0) [S(0)] [S(3)] [S(6)] [S(9) ] [S(12)] [S(15)]  
T(1) [S(1)] [S(4)] [S(7)] [S(10)] [S(13)] [S(16)]  
T(2) [S(2)] [S(5)] [S(8)] [S(11)] [S(14)]   
I call it 'make a pile' . Now, once we have fixed the number of the box (8 in this examples), give S we want to make T.
I'have some solutions that use perl/sort, but they are not nice.
indeed, the more you tex, the more you find in it
yes, but every time i touch it i think "i'm not ready now, maybe tomorrow....".
(and i don' want touch Metafont)
