It should be easy task, just few rows of code.
The hardest part is deciding when are blobs considered equal.
Because blobs are by default segmented, what do you expect here:
- first blob consisting of one segment 'abcd'
- second blob consisting of two segments 'ab' and 'cd'
Are they equal ?

FB treats them as different (which sounds reasonable to me);
however, with most access components you do not have control
over dividing data into segments ...
