How does the report designer store its layout? Is it a local binary file, a database table, or some sort of flat file format?
If a flat file, is there a layout definition such that crazies out here (ie me) could view and edit it?

It stores the layout in a "PRPT" file, which is similar to the open document standard used in OpenOffice.org. The definition of the XML files inside the ZIP file are defined in the book, so you could open up the PRPT and modify the report directly. We recommend using the Java API to do this manipulation.
