Its almost wash.  The plrm was 408 pages the last time I printed it, 
duplex, and probably wasted 100 pages on printer miss-fires, so I was 
out most of a ream of 24 lb super-white inkjet paper for a tenner, 
and probably 25=30 dollars in ink supplies for a Epson C82.  And 3.95 
or so for a 3 ring binder.  My time, even though I'm retired, still 
ought to be worth $10 an hour too, and that was a day and a half of 
paying attention to the job at the printer resolution I ran it at.  I 
don't know if I would have saved anything but a little shelf space if 
I'd have bought it from adobe.  So I've kinda set myself a 
breakprice, if its less than 60 bucks now, I'll go buy it.  YMMV of 
course.

I used to be able to do this a lot better on my amiga, as I'd written 
an arexx script to do the duplex printing once the book was rendered 
to individual page numbered files on the hard drive.  But I don't 
know how to break into the present cups pathways to insert such a 
handy utility here on linux, its too darned hard to get a printer to 
work, and once its working I hate to putz with it and probably break 
it.  I haven't even found where I'd modify the command line being fed 
to gs to enable the page numbered but seperate files, and where to 
put them.  Someone with a clue should clue me in. :-)  Using cups and 
gimp-print.
