Actually, not necessarily true. It will probably use a temp table for a
group by (until we go to 7.4 anyway), but I think it'll still write to a
second temp table if that's what you tell it to do.

If you don't think you can have a working full incremental by the time
we start ogr24-2 I think it makes sense to do this intermediate step.
