My view is that ultimately the default page size should only affect
document *creation*. I think existing documents should have their own paper
size embedded in them and this can be changed through the (unimplemented)
Page Setup dialog.

Assuming I start working on with the Page Setup dialog soon I don't think
this will be necessary.
Page Setup *will* require the current view to be changed on the fly. Does
anyone have any idea how hard this will be? Can I just destroy the view
and regenerate it with the new paper size?
