The problem is not the JSON decoder itself I guess, but keeping the whole
structure in memory. It's a few millions dicts, and dicts are heavy... But
I may be wrong, I've no numbers

Another solution would be to call a LUA RPC, but we would have memory

Any experience spawning something like a thread in LUA, returning before it
finishes and consuming the generated file from python? In this way I would
be able to speed up response writing.

Thank you again.
