Ah, okay, would it be possible to lop the "Extensions" section off from
http://www.reportlab.org/downloads.html, as it's the rlbarcode package
at the bottom of that which threw me...

Yep, I should have said that I strongly suspect the quality if the
printing I'm using is to blame...

Okay, other trip point: the barcode sub-package is not available in any
of the released versions of reportlab on the download page. I do prefer
to use released versions unless there's a specific reason not to, I
guess that's the case here ;-)
thanks for the pointers!
