That's what Bricolage does, and as long as your App has access to  
them on the file system (i.e., you don't have an array of app servers  
with their own file systems), it works just fine—especially for a Web  
app, where the Web server can handle actually *serving* the file.

But I would like to see BLOBs become a lot easier to use in  
PostgreSQL...

Best,

David
