[reportlab-users] Is there a way to prevent table split between particular rows?

Hi Lele,

The docs need to be extended mea cupla :(

The rowSplitRange is intended to prevent splitting near the top of the
table or to near to the end. There is only one allowed range = lo,hi
and splitting is only allowed if the lo<=splitpoint <=hi. I suppose
this could be extended to a more general list of allowed split ranges,
but that's not available right now.

If that's required I would have to do some extra thinking.
