Subject Re: Intermediate format: Are there examples for n-up and rotation?

sorry for this late response.

Your approach seems elegant.
However, I think there is a quicker workaround:
1st step, you generate your PDF.
2nd step, you insert each page in a 2nd PDF, using FOP again:
you can use the pdf-image plugin [1], in conjunction with free-form
transformation extension [2] (rotation and scaling).
For page selection, see TIFF handling [3], it is not documented, but
should work with PDF files. Caution with that, this is not a stable feature.
