I believe you are looking for py2pdf.py, the most recent version 
that I can find being included in ReportLab, in the tools 
directory.

It is very configurable, and the defaults are nice. It doesn't 
offer recursion or output redirection like you want, but you 
could probably take the code and run with it. What it will do 
out of the box is to convert your specified files to individual 
pdf files. For example:

python py2pdf.py *.py

results in a .pdf file for every .py file in the directory.
