By inner / outer, I probably mean even / odd or something. As a
picture, something like:

    +-----------+-----------+
    | aaaaaaa   |   aaaaaaa |
    | aaaaaaa l |   aaaaaaa |
    | aaaaaaa   |   aaaaaaa |
    | aaaaaaa   |   aaaaaaa |
    | aaaaaaa   | l aaaaaaa |
    | aaaaaaa   |   aaaaaaa |
    | aaaaaaa   |   aaaaaaa |
    | aaaaaaa   |   aaaaaaa |
    +-----------+-----------+

where l is our labels.

Big gap down the middle where the spine / two-up printing is, narrow
gap on the outside.

I suspect most people who print it out will be printing it out two-up
anyway.
