Topic: Images stored in a mySQL database
This may seem like an insane thing to even consider, but has anyone ever thought of using the ImageManager to access images stored in a mySQL database? It would be extremely useful to me if it could be done.
I'm thinking that it might be possible to write a plugin that intercepts the directory access and, instead, just pulls images from the database and passes them back to the ImageManager for the normal display/insert dialog.
Is this even possible and, if so, would it be insane to attempt it? I'm willing to try it, but I just need some guidance about where to start or a "You're crazy!" response so that I don't waste my time.
