Robin: As expected, this little test found my problem right away. I
hadn't properly qualified my Table in statement:
dataTable = Table(reportData)

Because of this it was using the table class from sqlobject I believe
which of course is not a flowable. Sorry for the inconvenience, I'll
definitely try to do better in the future.
