This is a secondary goal of the work I am doing at the moment. The
primary goal is to implement support for sequences of pages that donât
all have the same width (e.g., switches from portrait to landscape
layout). One of the requirements of the new approach is to make it
possible to handle documents of arbitrary sizes. And a candidate
solution for this indeed is to have some kind of n-page window.

This is a long-term project though, so donât expect any breaking news on
this before a while...
