I also would think it suffices to upload data to blob fields. Maybe we
could put in a configuration directive to enable upload to binary fields
disabled by default? So anybody who's willing to clutter his interface
with many upload-buttons, he can make it so.

I don't like the idea to split up the interface to another part. I find it
quite intuitive to have the upload stuff where I want to alter or insert
data. Linking to another page is discomforting for me, and maybe also
other users.

I think the 'edit' button on display_tbl should be enough to alter the
data. Another direct link - if I understand your approach - to upload is
in my opinion too cluttering.

$0.02 :)
