At the risk of siding with the "petty" people - the purpose of requiring a corrected copy with page numbers is so that your university can store a copy, and other people can read and cite your thesis if they need to. Most institutions do actually provide funding for printing and binding, but you have to ask; possibly this is something which is precluded by being in a snit.
