Typically the data is held in multiple files rather than 1 big one, so
you don't necessarily need streaming, just a set of steps that process
directories of xml into various intermediate formats, then into the
final presentation view (such as a table with the data grouped,
sorted, with counts)

I've done this sort of thing a few times now and I always enjoy it.
