The short answer is that there are operational issues that require it to 
be one big print job.  The long answer includes things like 
maintaining the order of the documents, ensuring no other print jobs 
get into the middle of the set of documents, etc., etc.  The 
documents being printed are taken off the printer and fed into another 
machine for further processing.

I'll stop there.

I'd be willing to 'merge' the PDF files before printing, if that is 
reasonably easy to do. I could also merge the print job at print time, 
as I think I'll need to write something that will take PDF and turn it
