This is nice and your recipe is certainly useful.

One small thing is that the PEPs are originally in rst format. The
rst2pdf renderer (at http://code.google.com/p/rst2pdf/) is a reportlab
based utility to compile rst files into pdf. It understands the markup
and renders it properly (links, TOC etc.). It looks much  better than
a raw text->pdf conversion. The crawling, combining still has to be
done. I've compiled the first PEP here. Take a look
