How big are there reports?
If they are not too big, why don't you just use "bytea"?
See chapter "8.4. Binary Data Types"
PS: I was struggling along the same lines, because when starting with postgres
the documentation seems to suggest to use the lo type for BLOB's (Chapter 28.
Large Objects). But I really could not find any reason to use them if the
objects are small (up to 200 KB).
Can any experienced Postgres user perhaps shed a light on this?
