Definitely a fabulous and necessary feature! I would also like to have
some kind of support for foreedge sculpting, maybe adaptible to
something like a Craft Robo, or some other cnc machine.

Creep control needs more thought within the fabric of Laidout.. I think
I can approximate when there are only horizontal or only vertical
folds, but mixed h and v folds introduce much more complicated
adjustments. I might implement a manual tinkering attribute, applied
to a totally unfolded paper.. Perhaps in version .092. The
only folding equipment I have to test with are my hands, though.

Working on it. Haven't quite worked out a decent interface for such
things yet, but hopefully there'll be something basically workable in

This will be basically satisfied by Laidout's import function. I might
implement special tags for when the ultimate need is to ONLY reimpose,
and not to add more content. Then the original pdf and an imposition
scheme can be easily fed into something like podofoimpose:

It will be pretty easy to implement a podofoimpose plan file export,
which supposedly works with any old pdf. This will definitely be a part
of .091. Whether I can simultaneously add custom printer marks via
podofoimpose, I'll have to investigate.
Once I can get linked text boxes and master pages to link correctly in
Laidout's Scribus import and export functions, imposition will happen
basically ok for Scribus documents too.

Any use cases or unusual issues you may have with imposioning might be
good to know, though such discussion might be better on the Laidout
Bug finding is always useful, and there's a ton in Laidout still to be
squashed before the next release!
