Hi John!

Have you had a look at the ExtFile Product
It basically does all the things you want to achive with the PersistentBlob
(i.e. storing files externally and making them accessible for external
processes), except that it's not that deeply integrated into the Zope
machinery and stores the files only in the file system and not in an RDBMS
(which nevertheless could be implemented).

Cheers, Gregor!
