Meanwhile, several people have used it in production. I was a little
taken aback to discover that it is considered "somewhat experimental"
(and it seems, a bit broken) in ZODB 3.8 (as distinct from the Plone
integration package, plone.app.blob, which indeed has been experimental
up until now). I think a lot of other people would be too.
A lot of people would be very happy if this bug in ZODB 3.8 could be
fixed, since the option of upgrading is not there (since ZODB 3.9
introduces too-incompatible changes to work with Zope 2.10) for anyone
on a released, stable version of Plone.
