Unfortunately each center’s invoice is a different, arbitrary, number of pages. 
The file internally knows when it becomes a new one, but that information is 
not fixed (there are listings of items, so sometimes a center could be one 
page, sometimes 5 (or any other number)).

This is why I was hoping that there is something internal to groff that would 
let me change the output file…
