1. Create all of the Unit Title Pages in a single FM file that's not
included in the book file.
2. Print each such Unit Title Page to a separately named postscript file,
and distill it.
3. Generate the PDF for the book.
4. In Acrobat Exchange, use Document > Insert Pages to insert each Unit
Title Page PDF file at the appropriate position.
