I've never used the beast, but I noticed the following bar code library
on Vault's of Parnassus (which, by the way, should always be your first
stop when looking for python modules. See http://www.vex.net/parnassus/ 
)

http://www.cgpp.com/bookland/

According to the docs it's GPL'd, and it generates encapsulated
postscript.

Have fun,

Paul

p.s.  Why are people generating their own bar codes?  Self publishing?
