I thought of an XSL-FO function to do it rather than a system variable, 
but I like this idea too.

Not to cloud the waters further, but it might be further useful if the 
function/variable provided a count per given SECTION. This might be the 
total # of pages in the document (if it were all one "section"), but 
could also be used for numbering pages a la 1.2, 1.3, etc.
