Correct handling of recto and verso title pages withDSSSL


I have fixed the little problem to do with recto and verso pages getting an
extra page after them if JadeTeX is doing its stuff and ensuring that a
simple-page-sequence starts on a recto page ...

Here are the patches ...

They stop the code in dbttlpg.dsl from doing a (make
simple-page-sequence...) for the recto and verso page for the title page,
and shift that back into dbdivis.dsl.

Seems to work for me ... 

However, I needed to modify jadetex.dtx slightly to set some variables that
I cannot convince OpenJade to pass into jadetex ... Will have to look at
why that does not work, but a couple of weeks.
