manipulating PDF-files with Python?

Hello!

Are there any open source Python tools that one could manipulate
PDF-files with? By manipulation I mean, for instance, deleting or
adding or replacing pages, etc.

Thanks for your time!

os.system and pdflatex with the pdfpages package is an option.

Been a while since I used it. I was generating whole pdf docs from
a structured text file.Don't remember editing capability, but I didn't
need it, I'll bet it's in there

ReportLab has PageCatcher, but it is not open source. I've used
it and it works great! Given how much I use ReportLab open source
package, I don't begrudge spending some money on the PageCatcher
add-in for this functionality.
