this is a suggestion by Urs from a user list thread on 2018-08-30: for

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.

This is not about automatic synchronization. That’s of course a far longer shot, and there’s already an issue for it (don’t want to search it right now). If adding a simple switch for odd-only/even-only is only syntactic sugar of sorts for functionality that with some effort is already available, that’s all the better, then this is only about designing the interface.

Best, Simon
