If it was a complex document, I'd agree. But as these packages are very
simple, I rather thought about producing a small LaTeX-Dokument using
pdfpages to split it correctly. In that document, the correct page
numbers can be used. There are many ways to do this task, I was just
looking for the one with the least number of steps and files. (A make
file would also help etc. …)
