perhaps it is not necessary from the safety point of view, but I find 
such an option would be nevertheless useful, since it would remove an 
unnecessary layer and would simplify things.

Right now you would have all your binary data in the filesystem and all 
textual data in the database.
I think it would require quite some work to develop an API to access 
both consistently.

But I dont really have a clue what I am talking about either...
