[Zope3-Users] Reportlab threadsafe solution?

I need to produce PDFs with reportlab.

reportlab is not threadsafe. 

I think I need a way to queue or generate a "lockfile" on requests for 
PDFs so that only one-at-a-time is generated.

I'm hoping that there is a utility for this already, but search in the 
source for queue or serialize or lock gets me a lot of stuff that does 
not seem to relate to what I want.

This looks like it would be a relatively simple utility.  Has this been 
done yet?  Any hints?
