Mr. Karwin, still star-struck with the wonder of XML, inadvertantly
overlooked the fact that blob filters were implemented at the same
time as UDFs (version 3?). Print a blr blob in the system tables
and you will see the engine calling a filter to turn gook into
ascii gold.

No education necessary.
