permlink Dear writers of printer drivers (including Apple)

Obvious, yet unimplemented:

If I tell my computer to print a document in a condensed fashion (2, 3, or 4 logical pages on one printed sheet) and the printout in question will actually fill fewer pages than specified, it would be most awesome if you would alert me to that fact and give me the option of printing the document with more pages per sheet.

(I don't always check how long a document is in advance. Printing 4-up when the document is only 2 pages long gives you 2 small page images and a half-empty sheet; not the best result. I should be told, 'This document is only 2 pages long; would you rather print 2-up'?)
