           Summary: Support storing JavaScript objects as BLOB
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P2
         Component: JavaScriptCore
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: jayant.b.sai at gmail.com

According to http://www.sqlite.org/datatype3.html, 'BLOB. The value is a blob
of data, stored exactly as it was input.'. Currently in WebKit & Safari, the
implementation seems to convert the JavaScript object to a string "[object
Object]". It would be great if it were possible to store JavaScript objects and
JSON objects within the database as BLOB and as objects and not as string

Currently, only a string de/serialization would work, but that can be
expensive, especially when trying to run Safari on iPhone which has very
limited JavaScript execution time.
