I have no comments on this one... not an area of use for me. No complaints

Having had to do this via command line (don't remember what I used now) I 
think this is a great idea. Keeping pdfs as pdfs while manipulating the 
pages is the best way of doing things. Being able to send a group of PDFs 
as one document (I used it for emailing mortgage info) is the best way 
when they are related.
