My estimate is it would take me 1-2 days to implement this for PDF export (no
imposition but just a simple yes/no option resp. the signature size for booklets)

Output would be a PDF where the page size is the sum of the combined pages.
Bleed etc. would be clipped where two pages meet.

For PDF export the code is very similar to PDF embedding, so it would be
a good idea to combine it when we finish PDF embedding.

Implementing the same for Postscript would take longer.
