i'm not saying faster or slower. i'm just saying that if the files are
on the filesystem, then blob streaming doesn't make sense, unless he
wants to load his files into the blob streaming db.

if the files are in a database, then it does. unless i'm missing the
fact that blob streaming does not require the database-backing like a
normal mysql installation type blob column thing.

he has a few options

1) do nothing, serve from filesystem (i don't think this will work for him)
2) use a script wrapper which means it will keep the script open
spooling the file out
3) use a script wrapper with x-accel-redirect (my choice for file-based)
4) load them into a db and look at blob streaming
