I added some plausible locations to the search paths and hopefully they will now
be found. Also revamped the initialization of settings and modifications.
When reportlab is imported we try to use dynamic modifications from
optional reportlab_mods.py or ~/.reportlab_mods
reportlab_mods.py can be anywhere on PYTHONPATH. If not present we try
~/.reportlab_mods which although not a .py file is treated as a python source
When reportlab.rl_config is imported we pick up settings from
optional reportlab_settings.py or ~/.reportlab_settings
again reportlab_settings.py can be anywhere on PYTHONPATH and if not present we
try to read and exec ~/.reportlab_settings into our defaults namespace. Andy
thinks (and I agree) it is probably wrong to use a ~/.reportlab file if an
application specific one is present.
