[reportlab-users] load Image() from embedded python

I think that everywhere we accept a filename, we also accept a
file-like object. So you could store it as some kind of escaped
binary string in your source code, then wrap it in a StringIO and pass
that to the platypus Image.

I'm not in a programming environment now but if this is not clear we
can post a code snippet later in the day...
