if you look at JasperReports it is Java. Can you implement this 
internally into QGIS? Looking at reports in general some kind of 
programming will always be needed to generate an individual report 
because the data structure is individual, too, so I think it will always 
be something for specialists.
An idea to start with would be to create a new element in Composer that 
makes simple calculations like sum or average on a field: Choose layer - 
choose field - choose what to do. Evaluation time will be the same as 
for the map (either permanetly or on request but at least before printing).
