this is used by ruby script vpp: http://www.servalys.nl/scripts/vpp
documentation at http://www.servalys.nl/scripts/doc/files/vpp.html
The script needs http://www.servalys.nl/scripts/scriptingutils.rb

can be used interactively or on the commandline.
commandline examples:

$ vpp --batch='1,3,5 otest' cvs.pdf

creates test.pdf, containing pages 1,3,5 from cvs.pdf

$ vpp --batch='1,2,153-160,3-152 ocvs' cvs.pdf

rearranges pages in cvs.pdf, replacing the original
