add Blob Compression

As blob fields are often used to store files it contains a lot of uncompressed data, which can grow quickly (especially if your customers stores insane amounts of bitmaps).
We got compression build in for blob fields within our program, but this causes 3th party software to use the same compression, most often resulting in choosing not to use any compression at all.
It would be nice if you could support compression (property of the column).

        Our customers arent so smart, most images THEY store are BMP's which have a nice compression ratio. (Yes i made a conversion to PNG recently which helped a lot). But Images aren't the only things that are stored, in fact its less than 10%.

        Images in general don't compress well enough to bother with lossless compression. How well is the serialized image compressing that you'd even bother with it?
