This would be really useful! For the time being, sdepold's suggestion is to use the text column and manually convert the data. A BLOB would be a nice-to-have though.

So you can base64 encode the data, but that increases the size of the data on disk by 33%. The reason why I want to use a blob is so that I can actually compress the data and increase IO throughput across the board. Implementing a FriendFeed style solution right now.
