To be able answer Paul Higgins' recent question regarding retrieval of BLOB
data, I checked ooSqlite's BLOB handling - see incubator/ooSQLite.

It seems that ooSQLite will return BLOBs as ooRexx Buffer objects only.
This means that its content cannot be accessed through ooRexx unless there
was a helper function which ooSQLite doesn't seem to provide.

As I don't know a good reason, why BLOB data should be returned as an
opaque Buffer, I suggest to change the code to return the data as a simple
String or a MutableBuffer.

Does anyone have concerns?
