It is not a known issue, but nobody within ReportLab actually knows
about or uses these codes regularly - it was a contribution. If nobody
else on the list disagrees, feel free to submit a patch.

Sadly I can't allocate anyone at our end to barcode research in the
next 2 weeks but we're happy to run patches and run the test output
through our scanner.
