there are examples of deferred content in the reportlab tests; you'll need to
access the source distribution to get hold of those. Technically you'll need to
do a two stage run to obtain the content of the links unless they all point
backwards. The test_pdfgen_links.py illustrates most of the concepts associated
with low level links. If you're using platypus check out the
test_platypus_paragraphs.py file. Look for the <a tags; in paragraphs you can
have <a name="target"> to define a target and <a href="target"> to make a link
to the target. Then you need to find out how to get the page numbers into the text.
