I like a challenge of this type. Almost anything is doable, and I think
you've brought up something where the effort is worth it.

What I want to try is to be able to enter 'odd' or 'even' for the pages,
then have the script detect this, and ask for a starting page, after
which a loop begins there and moves every other page's objects to the
end. It wouldn't really need to determine whether the starting page is
odd or even as promised, unless the user wants to add this protection.

This would be a script where saving before running would be a good idea
-- if you shift 100 pages the wrong way, that's a lot of Undo'ing.
