Thanks! I've just implemented it in pdfpages and it works smooth.
I'll do some more testing and put it on CTAN after you'll have
released XeTeX-0.997.

There's still one thing that puzzles me: Why doesn't
\pdfpage{width,height} have sensible defaults?


I am pretty sure most (or nearly all?) users wouldn't be
able to tell what they get from the above example before
running it -- with and without the two line uncommented.

I really hope that it's not just me for whom the result of this
example is highly unexpected.

However, I still cannot see any advantage of this weird default. :-(
