Yes, there's always SOME way to avoid it, but obviously significantly
more work. Just depends what the priorities are... Preserving fanfold
seems like a strange priority, wouldn't it be more practical bound
Or, similar to your suggestion, load it into a compatible printer (so
that it can be sprocket fed), with some kind of takeup spool, then form
feed pages through, snapping each one between feeds.
