Yes, I think that make sense. I simply overlooked it because I was too
much focused on Mnemosyne queries.
Probably using ets:select/3 and ets:fun2ms to generate queries (like you
suggested in your first answer), and then passing subsequent client
requests using the Continuation term with ets:select/1 is the solution
to this problem.
