is it possible to change the name of the PDF reports from PDF Server?

right now Splunk sends pdf reports named splunk-report.pdf. we'd like to change them so they include the date and possibly the topic of the report. is this possible? how?

Unfortunately it's not possible in the current version of Splunk without modifying code

In splunk 4.3.1, the sendemail.py script updates the filename with the timestamp.
see line 528
filename = '%s-%s.pdf' % (pdfviewfn[:50], datestamp)

It's hard-coded. I changed the report-name in sendemail.py file.

I checked report.py file, but I couldn't find a way to change the name.
Is it hard-coded?
