[Neo4j] Store binary data with byte []

Same question here (since we're storing blobs in Neo today).  Also, the same
question applies on "clobs" - if we store the data as a string (e.g. JSON
format) instead of binary, is that better than byte[]?

Around what size of byte[] should i consider using some other storage
means than neo4j?

Could it be as easy as just storing the byte[] as a single file
transparently?
