Obviously that does not help very much: The page numbering and the thumb
index will be on the wrong (inner) side doing this. There is to be
something else: At first: if a page is empty, skip it; but secondly let
the odd page following be an "even" one, and thirdly, adjust page
numbering and thumb index accordingly.
