[reportlab-users] format error? Boy is that confusing!

in latest bitbucket there's an adjustment to the code which allows the behaviour 
you want or sorts according to all labels being equal.

The rl_settings.py file contains

errorOnDuplicatePageLabelPage= 0
       #if True will cause repeated PageLabel page numbers to raise an error.

so you can set to 1/True to get a suitable message when the PageLabel sort takes 

Best place to do the change is documented in rl_config.py ie

	reportlab_settings.py or ~/.reportlab_settings

so leave the rl_settings.py file alone and create a reportlab_settings.py on the 
python path etc etc; not that the ~/.rl_settings file has no extension.
