Hi Andy,

Yup, that's the general idea.  We create the BLOB column in the schema.  
We are testing cases where these collections are embedded-element=true, 
embedded-element=false, and default (also not embedded).  We have join 
tables for the non-embedded fields and columns in a table for the 
embedded fields.
