[pdftex] "\frontmatter" and page-numbering.

I had always considered in a "feature" of Acroread that page numbers in the
bottom-line box were usually out of sync. with the document. I.e. the 'Reader
strictly numbered from "1" and allowed for no title pages or front matter.
However I see from Adobe's PDF14Deltas.pdf (one of Donald Story's recent
references) that it is possible to have "i, ii, ii, . . . viii, 1, 2 . . .
230" or whatever. (The file doesn't _say_ you can do it (or how) it is just
a practical example of it being done.)
Using \frontmatter and \mainmatter (in "book"} on LaTex achieves this for
printed numbers but not for the Acroread bottom line.
Is there something I can do to my file . . if not can I add this to
the pdftex Users' Wish List?
Thanks, Michael Chapman (France).
