It is possible if you write your own storage implementation, derived 
from the current implementations.

I think the easiest step is to implement file-based storage only for 
attachments, and this has already been done by some of our users. 
Searching the mail archives should provide some pointers.

Next, if you just want to access documents from a folder, you can use 
WebDAV for that. See
I don.t think that actually storing the contents of the documents 
outside the database helps, since wiki content should never reach the 
limits of the database (unless you're storing genomes or data out of the 
LHC as wiki content). The main advantage of the database is speed. The 
main advantage of filesystems, easy access from other programs, can be 
achieved through WebDAV.
