I meant the latter, that it might not scale well as the number of time steps 

However, the former might also be an issue. We haven't had a lot of use cases 
for nested aggregations beyond two levels so that hasn't been tested very

If your data for a single model is all stored as "one file per run" or is all 
stored as "one file per time step", I think the FMRC aggregation should work. 
I'm not sure an FMRC aggregation could deal with dataset collections where 
different variables are split into separate files. I'll have to look into that.

If you want to send us information on what you've tried for FMRCs and more 
detail on how your model data archives are organized, we could take a look and 
see if we can make any suggestions.
