I have idly wondered from time to time if one diversion after another
could be created, each holding a page's content without any pages being
emitted, and then the diversions printed in a different order to their

Memory bloat would be an obvious downside, but it's more of an
experiment than a serious solution as re-arranging the pages is often
straightforward and some post-processing already required for other

Cheers, Ralph.
