In the meantime, I have a work around:

class ScalaingTable(Table):

def __init__(self, data, **kw):
self._scaleWidthPercent = kw.pop('scaleWidth', 100)
Table.__init__(self, data, **kw)

def wrap(self, availWidth, availHeight):
Table.wrap(self, availWidth, availHeight)
if self._width < availWidth and self._scaleWidthPercent:
scale = float(self._scaleWidthPercent)/100
scale_width = scale * availWidth/self._width
self._colpositions = [p*scale_width for p in
self._colWidths = [w*scale_width for w in self._colWidths]
self._width = availWidth * scale

return (self._width, self._height)

It'd be great to find the docs for '*', None, and how permutatiopns of
'*', None and numeric column widths are supposed to interact...
