Allow download of report generated via contract-based API without saving the file to the object

Currently, in order to retrieve a report through the contract-based API, the approved method appears to be to call an action to generate and save the report to the record and then do a second call to retrieve the files.  I have no innate need to keep these files and would prefer not to use up storage space for them.

I'm going to attempt to create an additional action to delete the files through the API after I have retrieved them, but it would be preferable to be able to generate and retrieve a report file cleanly without the save.  Apparently this was an option in the screen-based API but not the contract-based.
