Hi Doug,

I did something like this using R & markup in my old job (as in, there was a 
markup report with embedded R code that would generate the stats). I believe I 
generated both html and pdf reports from it. If memory serves right, I had it 
as a postrotate on my monthly logrotate for the accounting file... Worked 
pretty well, actually. 

I'm pretty sure I wrote some functions to read accounting files into R etc. 
Would you like me to dig out the code?
