Great.  What a wondeful tool to rebuild a pdf file the way you want.  All I had
to do was: `apt-get install pdfjam' (pdflatex is already installed on my
system); then I got what I wanted with:

 $ pdfnup --nup 2x1 --paper a4paper --noautoscale true --delta "1cm 0cm" --pages 13-20 --outfile output.pdf ~/input.pdf

The option `--noautoscale' set to the value `true' avoided the reduction, which
is what I wanted.

But now, suppose instead that, for another job, I wish to scale it at my
pleasure: is it not possible?
