RE: [Catacomb] PHP ...
Yes, we are going to store only resource content in a file system.
Also I like the several blobs idea,
If we could use Apache filters/handlers to provide PHP or CGI thing, it's
the best way to go, I guess.

For clarification, the intent is still to store resource/collection data in
filesystem, but your statement above means that Catacomb will probably need
name and arrange those data files in a manner that prohibits/makes difficult
direct access to these files through traditional methods (a shell for
Metadata will be still be stored in the DB. Do I understand?
PS - we are moving toward using Apache filters/handlers to force PHP files
parse when stored within a Catacomb repository. Correct?
