Potentially, yes... but from a practical standpoint I believe this will
never happen.  Writing to a tempfile over any sort of local storage
(even a local network) will be *much* faster than downloading the file
itself.  If this is indeed a problem perhaps it's a deployment issue
where you should ensure the temp dir is on a fast local volume to make
sure this never happens.

As it stands right now this seems to be the only sensible approach to
returning a large file.
