The amount of rows I need to put in the table are big, so, if I have more
rows per page the final pdf will had fewer pages. Looking at your last
email, I have two questions:
1. How reportlab calculate the size for a table? or maybe, how reportlab
calculate the size for a widget? (i.e. frame, flowable, etc.)
2. how reportlab calculate the number of rows per page?

Thnaks for you help.
