Ok, I tried using Victor Eijkhout's repeat macro, which allowed me to use
multiple paragraphs in the loop argument.  With this, each iteration of my
"Lorem ipsum" text generated about 5 1/2 pages.  So 10,000 iterations gave
me a 15661 page PDF, and took about 80 sec. on my machine.  That's better
then 11000 composed pages a minute, so that's a good result.  Here's the
gist of it ..

\repeat \to{10000} \do{
Lorem ipsum dolor ... }


Thank you all!
