If it's PDFability you want, Reportlabs, and other libs that build on
top of it, are the only serious options for Python. PyPDF can reorder,
crop, delete, etc. pages, but it cannot generate a page.
According to Massimo, you should only need the binaries if you're
including images in your reports. I use Pisa and I do include images.
But I have Pisa/Reportslabs installed as a normal Python module, not as
wrapped in a single web2py app.
