[reportlab-users] How to mix static positioning and flowables

In this case, the static content only appears on the first page. The table
can then continue for however many pages after that as needed. I do have an
older project where I did have the same static stuff on each page with a
flowing table across pages and sub-totals per page that I ended up writing
a hack for. I'm trying not to do that for this one.
