Oh, wait.. I get what you mean now. Yeah, the Mirror option in the
print dialog would have worked in this situation - I have no idea how
I managed to miss that, sorry.

That does remove a lot of the situations where I would have used the
block mirror. I'll leave it up to you guys whether it is of sufficient
usefulness to include or not. I'll try to check a little more
thoroughly in future before suggesting modifications.
