Summary: current page object number

Initial Comment:
Dear PdfTeX-developpers,

sometimes the reference to the current page object is 
needed within the implementation of another pdf object.

As an example may serve the `Screen Annotation' 
several interactive PDF features rely on.

Currently, the \pdfpageref command, which takes a page 
number as argument, can be used for this purpose. 

It is difficult, however, to maintain a reliable page 
counter as the attached file demonstrates. It uses the 
`everyshi' package by M. Schroeder.

On the first line of every page a wrong object number 
is being output.

It would be very nice to have a command like 
\pdfcurrentpageref to be implemented in pdftex.

Thanks for your attention,

Alexander Grahn
