There is one advantage. You must either chown the upload directory to
the user that your web-server runs as, or chmod it to be world-writable.
When creating a web-application that you plan to distribute (like
Slashcode), you can't assume that your users will have that privilege.
So, storing it in MySQL is a great option.
