tmoertel,
I had thought about this myself after posting. The reason I didn't give it a lot of initial thought is because the Java developer made it clear that I was not welcome in the sandbox. My guess is that some sort of limited buffer would be best since that's still a whole lot of lines to be keeping all in memory.

Cheers - L~R
