Why don't you mention ReportLab there? I never saw a better library for
creating PDFs in *any* language. For creating crude reports it may be a
little more difficult than things like JasperReports, but for custom
reports full of different forms of data presentations and such, like I'm
doing now (and I plant to post later on ReportLab's samples page) it
just rocks!

Just my two cents,

"Quem excele em empregar a força militar subjulga os exércitos dos
outros povos sem travar batalha, toma cidades fortificadas dos outros
povos sem as atacar e destrói os estados dos outros povos sem lutas
prolongadas. Deve lutar sob o Céu com o propósito primordial da
'preservação'. Desse modo suas armas não se embotarão, e os ganhos
poderão ser preservados. Essa é a estratégia para planejar ofensivas."

  -- Sun Tzu, em "A arte da guerra"
