Currently you can search contents of blobs by
case sensitive LIKE and STARTING,
case in-sensitive CONTAINING.

Although search does not use indexes, it is pretty fast because
it is processed _after_ other conditions-optimized-by-indexes are applied.

The only problem is that blobs do not support collations -
it means that CONTAINING is in fact case in-sensitive for basic ASCII characters,
but case sensitive for national characters.
