I've been using PDF::Report (which wraps PDF::API2, and allows you to
jump down to PDF::API2 directly if needed) for work projects which was
unmaintained but I now have PAUSE COMAINT on it, and have some fixes
and updates in github for it.

The code I've been working on at work isn't Moosey, but is OO and uses
styles and makes layout fairly easy, I don't know if it's likely to be
open sourced, but I'd be interested in collaborating with Leo or
anybody else with an eye for moving from an internal API to a more
standard CPAN module.
