It's historical. the SQL database we used to use had no support for blobs.
the thing we're discovering as RT2 gets ported to more modern databases is
that the support that's there in, for example, postgresql _still_
isn't really that reasonable.

But yes, RT2 moves things into the database.

A REAL sysadmin challenge is "resurrect five dead mailserver while so ripped
to the gills on mdma that you can't focus on any given line of text for more 
than 10 seconds continuously."
