Honoured to include your patch Harald :)
It's now in the trunk. I added back in the bulletFont settings though, so the
beginning of _drawBullet reads
tx2 = canvas.beginText(style.bulletIndent, cur_y+getattr(style,"bulletOffsetY",0))
tx2.setFillColor(hasattr(style,'bulletColor') and style.bulletColor or
and the attributes are also allowed in the paraparser.
