I am a bit worried that using multiple blobs (one for each text field) 
for each content item in a large site will result in many many small 
files, which will cause performance problems at the OS/filesystem level. 
Not all filesystems can do tail packing which means you will loose a lot 
of diskspace, and the amount of files can slow down directory operations 
and fsck.
