Is there a problem using the "User" sized page, which lets you give any dimensions,
including a height which is larger than a width?

Well I do know of some clamping in there which seems to be keeping a person from doing
this at the 4" x 6" size (schematic on a baseball card) but for sizes larger than this, I
think use of page size "User" solves this in an indirect way.  Nonetheless, I have most of
this portrait support coded already, just missing the dialog boxes, and file format
changes that will be required.
