Diego did get back to me - did you get my last 2 emails.
One had the attached mssql.class file.

Yeah, the generator take a simple URL as an argument.  It then downloads
the HTML for the URL and converts it to PDF.  That should make
integration into GL's plugins a breeze.

Oh, and has Diego gotten back to you?  He should lurk in the IRC channel
when he gets a chance.
