I don't know if it's worth having. I guess it depends on how many
binary blobs we expect to encounter (and I assume this is a very low
number). On the other hand, I'm sure it was not just changed for the
heck of it.
Andrew, what was the reason for this change? Performance? Code
simplicity? Is this just a common thing to do? I'm simply curious.
