[reportlab-users] intermediate save's when multiple documents are put in a single pdf

I have to print tons of invoices. Now i scanned a little bit the reportlab sources and  my first impression was that it wouldn't be too difficult to 'patch' (replace) the canvas.save() so one could call it for each document and they are appended to a single pdf.

Main advantages for me would be:
a) smaller memory footprint
b) the document 'roundup' (e.g. page x of y) would be on the actual document basis instead of the whole pdf.

Anyone ever tried to stream to the pdf file in this way?

Kind regards
