Thanks, I started with 1.18.1 and this version stops at 8..

I don't think that `BP' is the right place.  For me, the paper size
and orientation is a global option.  TeX can't do that either, BTW.

  <</PageSize ... would also allow the free mixing of land/port
pages, not only all port or all land (using two versions of "bp").

Feel free to add macros which do that for you (using the \X'ps: ...'
escape).  I won't do that directly within groff.

Yes, I'll do just that. setpagedevice does not preclude DSC comments
and, unlike DSC comments, every level2-3 interpreter must know about it.
And I am lazy enough to print in one batch, rather than two, and assemble ports and lands

Thank you,
