Assuming you don't want to provide a seperate package for Python 2 anymore, you might want to consider to package additional tools like Pythonpoint as, well... additional tools. I remember in ancient times there was the idea to provide an extension mechanism for reportlab, much like Sphinx does today, but apparently that never materialized.
Otherwise: thumbs up for Python 3! BTW, will this also be Reportlab 3?
