A special kind of Flowable could perhaps change its output depending on how many
times it has been drawn


class MyHeader(Flowable):
def __init__(self,para0,para1):
self.x = 0

def wrap(self,aW,aH):
return self.content[self.x].wrap(aW,aH)
def draw(self):
self.x = 1

Not sure if this actually will work, but it might.
