No, reportlab doesn't work with python3.
Neither Django, nor Twisted.

As well the modules below are incompatible with python3 (to mention a few):
- PyGTK2
- Pyjamas
- Kiwi
- Beaker
- Cheetah
- CherryPy
- nose
- Paste
- numpy
- PyChecker
- pycrypto
- egenix utilities (used by many db connectors)
- psycopg
- couchdbkit
- Elixir
- MySQL-python
- PyDB2

And many, many more.
It'll be a long time for many of these modules be converted (rewritten 
in some cases) to python3.

It was a smart move from the standpoint of package management, but from 
the point of view of a developer...
