only odd or only even pages, with according page numbers and margins
(in case of twosided = ##t).

Just to clarify, is this request strictly about page numbering and margins (something I believe LilyPond already supports albeit via manual* configuration), or does it also encompass the automatic synchronization between the primo and secondo parts at each page break (also something that requires manual** intervention to achieve at the moment)?

* Each part's margins can be customized uniquely to achieve the desired mirroring, and the page numbering needs only a little arithmetic to show up as odd-only or even-only.

** Providing things do not align by chance, adding explicit \pageBreak commands would ensure that page turns happen at the same moment.
