The buildbot run last night spotted a problem under Python 2.5
(no cmath.rect function) which I've now fixed.

We do test under Python 2.5 with TravisCI as well, but at
the moment we don't install the ReportLab dependency.
There is a balance between installing more dependencies
(to get more of our code tested) and the extra runtime
required (meaning the job is more likely to be killed, or
fail due to a network issue) giving false test failures.
