Perhaps some members of this list might be interested in having "pdfnup", 
which converts a pdf document to 2-up, 4-up or whatever, for more 
economical printing.  In essence, pdfnup is a simple front end (with a 
drag-and-drop interface under OS X version 10.1.3 or later) to parts of 
the excellent "pdfpages" package (by Andreas Matthias) for pdfLaTeX.

See http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/~firth/pdfnup/ for more.

I have not been able to test it properly on systems other than my own, so 
I would be very grateful for any comments.  It works fine for me, but I 
would not mind spending a *little* more time on pdfnup if more is needed 
to make it work for everyone else.

It does rely on a fairly recent version of pdfTeX.  Mine reports:

     This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-1.00b-pretest-20020211 (Web2C 7.3.7)

and if yours is much earlier than that you might expect problems.
