I forget about Xy3+, but in Xy4 you just issue TY with an /RV (Reverse)
argument, and your job is printed (quoth the manual) "so that the first
page is on the bottom of the stack and the last page is on the top." Isn't
that what you want? But even without, isn't this just a collation problem?
Most H-P lasers have a way of opening a back door or flipping a plastic
doohingy that reverses the pages.
