In theory something like \vskip-\pagetotal will sort of work, but as 
Reinhard noted, skips are always relative so this won't quite work all 
of the time.

Better to describe what you're trying to do --- at a guess the package 
esopic available from CTAN should be just what you want.

This I don't think exists. If it does (and I'd love to be proven wrong) 
I've got a project to apply it to.

Perhaps what you want could make use of a margin paragraph?
