My patch for faster formatting of long tables is contained in the
1.19 distribution. The class LongTable is contained in tables.py.
Just use LongTable instead of Table, and the rendering uses 
another algorithm..
However, you have to supply the column sizes 
(LongTable probably won't work with auto-determining sizes).
