Does one need to suppress entire pages?

One could do the following:  When you create a new view, AND this is the 
new last view AND the previous last view was marked THEN the view marks 
itself and unmarks the previous last view.

When you delete a view AND this was the last view AND it was marked THEN 
the new last view is marked.

But isn't this rather complicated and going to confuse the user?

One alternative:  You can mark both pages and views for printing.   When 
a new page is created, it's automatically marked.  New views are not 
marked.  ipetoipe -markedviews will export all marked views on marked 
pages, or the last view of a marked page if none of its views is marked.

We could have a preview (similar to the page sorter) that shows all 
marked pages and their marked views.
