Alternatively you can use FBExport and backup tables one-by-one. It only
exports data though and you'll have a separate backup file for each
table. But it has been tested to work fine with FB 2.1.

Well, looks like FBExport can do what you want for 1. and 2. and
although it supports blobs, 3. seems to use a custom algorithm, so you
probably wont use it (of course you can invoke it to export a single
blob to a single file, but you would need to create an application that
would check whether image files exists anyway).
