Cheers - our tests didn't show up any issues (except for bitmap
output which of course needs PIL).

As an aside, running with -3 did show one Python 3 issue in the
current ReportLab code:

DeprecationWarning: The 'new' module has been removed in Python 3.0;
use the 'types' module instead. import new

(Much better than ReportLab 2.4 which I have installed for
Python 2.6 on this machine - I can see you've been working
on this).
