I'm much in favour of having an XML-based pipeline (both lxml and Genshi
sound like they provide good tools here).
Gary Poster just proposed (see my response ) something on the
zope3-dev mailinglist to allow standard browser views to return
non-string objects which the publisher then adapts to IResult in order
to actually obtain a string. For efficiently streaming large data to the
client, this approach is already used internally in Zope 3: you write
the data to a tempfile and return the file handle, the adapter to
IResult streams the data in chunks.
