That's no great hardship. Compared to reading the awful PHP source code
I was stuck with, Python is a joy.

Is there a documentation wiki anywhere, so I can take what I've learned
and put it into a usable form for whoever follows in my footsteps?

Also: I presume some sort of widow/orphan control is possible, and
multi-column layouts, perhaps using Platypus? I'm reading paragraphs of
text out of a database and putting them onto the page, and the client
doesn't want paragraphs to break across the columns at all.
