Currently, the BlobStore interface has a method "String writeBlob(InputStream in)". This issue is about adding a new method "String writeBlob(String type, InputStream in)", for the following reasons (in no particular order):
- Store some binaries (for example Lucene index files) in a different place, in order to safely and quickly run garbage collection just on those files.
- Store some binaries in a slow, some in a fast storage or location.
- Disable calculating the content hash (de-duplication) for some binaries.
- Store some binaries in a shared storage (for fast cross-repository copying), and some in local storage.
