My idea was to implement one-pass "part K of N" functionality for
multipage tables. With pdftex it is easy, at least the test code works:

\pdfobj reserveobjnum {}

\edef\ppp{\noexpand\pdfliteral{BT [\the\pdflastobj\space 0 R]TJ ET}}
\def\para{Counter++. The final value is \ppp\par}


\immediate\pdfobj useobjnum\num {(test)}

Thanks to your suggestions, I thought that I could make a similar trick
with DVIPDFMx, but so far no solution is found, despite I tried several
different approaches. For further assistance, a letter ot the DVIPDFMx
mailing list is sent.
