How does this work if we only want to print even pages or odd pages?
Browsing through PSOutputDev.cc it looks like first_page and last_page
are used for two things: figuring out how many pages to print (last_page
- first_page + 1) and calculating the bounding box of those pages.  From
a poppler point of view (i.e. wether or not evince is going to support
this) I think we should export API to print an arbitrary subset of pages
to postscript.  Not sure what the API should be... Albert suggested
taking a list of pages to print which certainly would work.

Maybe what we should do is to make a poppler_document_print_range(int
first, int last) method, which allows us to add
poppler_document_print_subset(GList *pages) later, when necessary.
