There is no right answer here, only trade-offs. The blob
solution makes it possible to move the data - hard coded file
paths are a disaster for system management. Backing up a
multi-gigabyte database is a problem. Version 2 of Firebird
includes an incremental backup that will help. Personally,
I'd go with blobs.
