QWeb Report page counter on page

I'm building a report for a customer. All is fine except that he wants to display the page number on the page (near the adress field) instead of the footer, which is not working at all.

As I understand so far, the subst.js used in the report module is responsible for replacing the page and topage classes with the page numbers.

The subst.js is called in the report/minimal_layout template, if subst is True. The boolean value is set in the report.py in the get_pdf method for the header and footer to True, while it is false for the reportcontent. If I'm applying bad practice and edit the Odoo core and set subst=True for reportcontent, the report engine does not render the body part of the report anymore and returns undefined.

Has anyone had this problem and found a suitable solution?
