It is possible.

Look at demos/rlzope in the ReportLab package, it's a sample
of a Zope External method which extracts datas from Zope and
returns a PDF document in the web browser.

beware: some people say that problem may arise because RL is not
thread safe, with low volume I haven't seen any, but as always: YMMV.
