[reportlab-users] clipping path question

Hello all,

Can someone tell me how to clear the clipping path once it is set using
canvas.clipPath(path)?  (other than placing a save and restore state around
it) I've been digging through docs and looking at the source code but I
haven't seen what I'm looking for.  shapes.py defines EmptyClipPath=Path()
which I though perhaps I could pass into the clipPath method as my path and
clear it that way. But, unfortunately it gives me an error:

  File "C:\Python22\reportlab\pdfgen\canvas.py", line 1276, in clipPath
    gc = aPath.getCode(); pathops = PATH_OPS[stroke, fill, self._fillMode]
AttributeError: Path instance has no attribute 'getCode'

Thanks in advance for any help.
