Ah, sorry, I did not realize this first, and was too trapped in my
own ideas/requirements. This is a different approach, but worth a
closer look, it seems.
The whole task is probably impossible to accomplish without a lot of
hand-work anyway, but at least if math is involved, it's probably
still a viable alternative to using Acrobat.
Sometimes I get to read manuscripts that might actually benefit from
flipping or rotating (though they are not RTL text), I should
consider this further...
