I use multivalent to impose stuff like booklets and brochures - works well, 
but you need the CLI to do it (it's java so I'm assuming it works in windows 
as well).

A friend of mine and I did write a script to impose pages for booklets, I 
guess I could rework it for brochures too.  (guess I need to make it more 
complex than I have it now to be more useful for other folks).

Imposition is on the road-map as far as I know, if I'm not printing something 
I tend just let my print-shop do the imposition for me (espcially for covers 
or things that require bleed support because multi-valent can't handle that.

I'm looking forward to the day where Scribus does this "in house" though!
