Hi Guillaume,

Thanks very much! Your answers help a lot!

AFAIK,there is a CSV storage engine in MySql that serves as a wrapper, enable executing SQL queries directly on the file.
This makes me think that the CSV FDW was doing similar things.

I am quite new to postgresql, but slowly picking up :)  In general context, storing images directly inside DBMS fields as BLOBs was not considered as a good practice. 
However, storing file directories  or links may cause inconsistency. So I am quite interested in how this datalink concept can be implemented!

Haha, agree!  I believe that's also a great starting point for learning pgsql internals.
