[texhax] Incrementing a counter on a page boundary?

I'm preparing a LaTeX document which involves per-page numbering. In
other words, I need "1a" "1b" etc on p1, "2a" "2b" etc on p2, and so on.
Thanks to David Kastrup's excellent perpage.sty, I am able to handle
what I thought was the difficult part, the "a", "b" part of the
numbering scheme. However, I'm struggling to get the page number to
come out right: in particular, \thepage can give a value that is one too
small at the top of a page -- presumably because of the way TeX "cuts
the scroll". Does anyone have a solution to this, perhaps a variation
on perpage.sty that increments rather than resets a counter? I'm afraid
the wizardry in perpage.sty is beyond me these days...
Many thanks in advance.
