ReportLab's good stuff.

On a large, Very Important Zope site I maintain, though, one which
delivers thousands of dynamically-generated PDF images (not to be
confused with the hundreds of thousands of PDF monthly statement
accounts, invoices, ... I know other organizations generate), I 
rely on html2pdf, along with small slices of ReportLab's freeware.
Our users seem plenty happy.
