I agree with Jason, leave it there for 2.22+. In the past, many of my
installations would have worked better if the files were stored outside
of the DB.
Plus, many companies, like my very large one, have different
inter-departmental billing codes for DB utilization vs file system
space. I have also seen ISPs charging different rates for buying extra
DB space vs web server space.
As a matter of cost savings, it'd be nice to keep it. With all the
warnings and flashing lights still intact.
