Crystal gets pretty slow on the upper end and has to gen each page
in memory as it prints it. I would recommend doing chunks of 1000 or
so. Unless you have a LOT of memory (like over 128mb) on the client,
are going to see a major slow down after a while. We are looking into
this feature natively to the next update of Emerald.
