Is it possible to superimpose Drawing objects generated by svglib and Flowable objects generated by platypus?

I can see Drawing is a subclass of Flowable, and everything Platypus creates seems to be a Flowable, but there are two problems.

One is that Platypus seems to use Canvas.save(), where Drawing seems to ultimately rely on renderPDF. Worse, Flowables flow around each other, and I want to superimpose graphics and text on top of each other? Is there a way to do this besides buying pageCatcher or running the sheet of paper through the printer twice?
