Indeed! However, there seem to be vanishingly few use cases for which  
raster-in-database is actually the more appropriate solution.

(BTW, point-in-time recovery, a nice example of a place where database  
semantics have an upper hand.  Although more modern file systems and  
enterprise backup systems are pretty competitive now... even a  
relatively simple hack like the OS/X Time Machine feature solves that  
problem for-all-practical-purposes.)
