If this is for printing a small number of copies, many PC printers now have an option to do this (sometimes called "Booklet Printing" on Canon printers)

Thanks, Mike. That's ingenious, and reasonably pure, but I really wanted to keep the titling stuff `above' and the TOC `below'

comment What is good practice when preparing a package for CTAN?
Sam, thank you for your encouragement to learn about the world of .dtx. The reason I've not taken the time to study it so far is that I haven't had a need to. I do respect it as "literate programming", though my lazier half tends to agree with Alan Munn. And then, there's so much else to get through!!!
