The last time I checked the qweb interpreter (which is actually just the orm) it was lazy loading stuff and working on the input stream sequentially, so I'd assume this to perform okay. The rest of the thread sounds like they doubt this can work for *large* amounts of data. Let's test this, I think there's a serious chance for this to work.
OK, I had the same opinion : it should not be difficult. I will follow Pedro's suggestion to take inspiration from report_xml. I hope to be able to make a PR on OCA/reporting-engines v10 soon.
