Default Missing InBooklet features for ID CS3; any plug-in ???

I am searching for a plug-in for Mac that will supply all/most of the capabilities of InDesign's CS2 InBooklet SE for InDesign CS3. Realizing that Print Booklet was not designed to offer the same services as it's CS2 predecessor, I am hoping that a 3rd party will step up to the plate to fill the gap.

Features such as manually altering the pagination by deleting or inserting blank pages and generating a new InDesign document in printer spreads (rather than just a PDF, as in CS3) are vital to my Design department.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks all!

There's Croptima InPlate, which is just sorting out its CS3 version (Windows only.)

Otherwise, most people seem to recomeend doing the imposition after making PDFs.
There is plenty of good shareware/freeware PDF imposition software for Mac.
The next step is Quite Imposing, which is a plug-in for Acrobat.

Wonder if AppleScript might not provide a solution for your department. Have you considered scripting?
