Is it possible to download a skuid page as a pdf, in the same way you can download the data as an excel file?

Ken,  we do not have PDF generation capabilites at this point.  Several customers have asked us about this.  The problem is that there is such substantial client side processing in Skuid that somehow replicating all that in a PDF would be very difficult.  The Excel download really just consumes the data - it does nothing with all the formatting and interactive processing that makes the SKuid page beautiful.

But what if you gave us an option to build a page but without conditional rendering? Add a page attribute for Render As PDF, and if checked then certain client side processing wouldn't apply? In this case I just need to output a form or two to save, attach, email etc and I want to use Skuid to define the layout. Is that possible?
