Unfortunately, pdftk is based on a VERY OLD version of iText - and neither pdftk nor that version of iText are supported :(.   There are many more modern, supported and open source solutions for working with PDFs...

What we do have right now, is the ability to save individual page PDFs, 
which can then be combined as desired, with pdftk, for example. Of 
course you can also complete this operation entirely with pdftk, by 
burst-ing the PDF then recombining. pdftk is worth getting to know, 
since it's quite useful.
