 This package allows you to place notes on the verso pages of an
 otherwise single-sided document.

 `\versonote{This is a remark}`, then that text will be placed
 on the opposite (ie, ‘verso’) page, lined up with the macro
 call.

 You can see a sample of how to use the package, and its
 results, in sample.tex and sample.pdf.
