[reportlab-users] PDF "optimization"

I'll add one other possibility.  If the report is a multi-page
document with a lot of repeating layout (e.g. my contributed
HCFA1500 form), the client could be complaining that it's taking 
too long to load.

One solution would be to create the repeating portions using 
the beginForm, endForm, and doForm methods.  This can make 
quite a difference if it's suitable for Ian's particular

master-of-the-obvious-ly yr's
