Just make sure you do some experiments with this kind of datastore in
GeoServer and make sure it performs as you expect before you go
implementing the python side :) It was my experience that cascading
WFS like this was just inefficient with anything but very small
datasets. As I said, the GeoSolutions folks may have some insight into
challenges you might encounter while testing.
