That sounds like it could be an ideal job for the Python interface ;-)

I'm at work right now, so I can't check - does current CVS have a PDF
export function for Python? If so, you could pull info from a database,
and for each DB row delete and re-create the address elements on the
page (or replace their contents) then output a PDF.

Of course, if you're not familiar with Python this might be a bit of an
ask, and it does depend on the PDF export functionality that was
discussed a while ago having made it in.
