For the biggest part it actually seems to work initially.  It starts 
being weird though when you see a list of organization charts that are 
clearly not charts, or a list of 8 cartoons of which one is a wrongly 
scaled logo.

Sounds good.  Thanks for looking at this, Shane and Hanno.

As a workaround for getting blobstorage to work reliably in a relstorage 
setup without a shared blob dir: is there any way to store the blobs 
completely in postgres and have no shared or cached blob dir in the zeo 
clients?  If that would work it should still be easier on memory usage. 
  It looks like a directory is really needed though, as trying this I 
get: "Unsupported: No blob directory is configured."
