The customization is run by generating an FDF file from CGI variables passed from a form, then shelling out to a command line. Shelling out from CGI scripts is something I'd rather not do, for reasons of speed and security. Is there any way that the ReportLab libraries can process such PDFs?

Might be missing something, but python fully supports cgi apps.  So, you 
could use a python cgi app to process the request parameters and 
generate the pdf.  This could run along side perl cgi apps, or other. 
Just a webserver configuration thing.  Hope this helps.
