comment How do I fix btrfs?
I must reward for providing an answer, although I have no idea if it's valid - I've since moved away from btrfs, since I have simple needs (reliability, and need to be able to cram as much media on a disk as possible)

comment File system for an SSD drive
I dunno - this seems like a lot of continued FUD about "write endurance". Even the most consumery drives will put up with at least 6 months of continuous writing of large data (SSD's are slow to write small changes). i.e. if it's a corporate file server, be concerned (tweak and get a good SSD). If it's a single user PC, then you'll want to replace your SSD in 5 years anyhow. That said, turning off atime etc will increase your performance (more over time)

Awesome - Thanks! I corrected the off-by-one errors ($1 refers to MediaBox: - at least it did for me... Looking at pdfinfo, I'm interested why you chose MediaBox instead of Page size...

@Gilles The workaround steps in the question take a square pdf and exactly double the width to create an exactly double size booklet, instead of one that is scaled to a certain (e.g. A4) page size. The key word in the question is "automatic": the steps produce the correct result, but require manual effort for each conversion (of different size pdfs)

@Braiam It's implemented in TeX, but specifically, the step 2 (being a command) is not TeX but standard shell.
