I'm thinking that it should be possible to create some kind of
compatability mode for the driver. If you knew for sure that you we're
only using OIDs for BLOBs, then that assumption would be safe (?). Would
something like that be possible to create, or am I missing something
Of course, this could add too much complexity to the driver.
