my question, would it be possible to create a program similar to the
NewtCompFlag program which resets a bit to create packages that are
compressed when stored on the newton, except it would convert books from
1x0 to 2x00 landscape or portrait and vice versa?

this would be really handy.

not sure if it's possible or not but seems to me it should work along the
same lines.

of course actual experience may prove me wrong...
