that is a good solution.

Please try to make sure that no "active" RL-module imports from DOCs
or Tests; not even somewhere deep down (i.e. some half-commented test
lines). That is important for the minority of us who distribute their
applications via py2exe on windows as "binaries", and having 2MB
accidently integrated Reportlab-Docus within is not really helpfull :)
