No. I haven't started to work with IAF yet. We're having problems with
PAI because the leftIndent pushed the paragraph further and further away
from the image when the image is too the left. We had to do a horrible
hack where PAI accepts a leftIndent argument and both the image and
paragraph are indented based on that.
I'm going to try working with IAF now. I just installed reportlabs-2.0
a little while ago and was experimenting with the new version of PAI
which accepts the left/right arg.
