Right.  And we should make it clear that we don't recommend that 
Bugzilla installations use this feature, since it adds a dependency on 
the filesystem that imposes limits on your use of Bugzilla.  In 
particular, you can't easily increase Bugzilla capacity by setting up a 
second instance of the app, since you then have to share a filesystem, 
which is harder than sharing a database.

Of course, the feature is the only workable solution for attachments 
greater than 16MB in size on MySQL 3.23, which imposes that limit on the 
size of communication packets.  But MySQL 4.0.1+ accept packets up to 
1GB in size, and 2.22 will require MySQL 4.0.2+, so perhaps this feature 
is no longer necessary and can be removed in 2.22.
