In my python script I use:

then merge this data into a MIME submission for the external web site, and on success, save it locally as a "file".

My question is -- aside from memory usage, what problems might there be with this approach?

It is *highly dangerous* to start requests to external resources from a running Zope request, unless you make sure the external request has a timeout that kicks in if it hangs for any reason. Just four hanging external resource requests and your Zope site is dead because all available threads are in use...
