Feature request: combine multiple pages

It would be nice to allow to create pdf files which have 2 or 4 pages on just one page. This can be done using the PDF Printer, but I think it would be a nice task also for the PDF-Tools program.

Another idea - adding (limited) functionality from the command line would allow to to batch jobs.
