Hi, I'd like to know what the official recommendation is on which binary
datatype to use for what situations.

I'm working with the Open For Business ( framework, which by
default maps binary data, such as shipping label images, into OID field
types. In general, the data is far less than a gigabyte in size. Should
this be BYTEA? Is it strongly recommended by the postgresql community to
store things like images in bytea format as of 8.0?
