    It doesn't look like pdftk allows you to combine separate pdf
documents into a single larger page size.  That is, I need to take
something like this:

doc1:  Af_|_Ab
doc2:  Bf_|_Bb
doc3:  Cf_|_Cb

... and create a single document like this:

doc1:  AfBf_|_BbAb

Yeah, but if I have to do it in LaTeX, I could just layout the whole
document in LaTeX.  I was hoping to avoid doing that.
