For text formatting, it would seem that UTF-8 is sufficient.  I just
want to make sure there is a pure binary encoding for objects like
images, video and audio files, so that needless encoding to a string
(e.g., data url) can be avoided at all costs.

Also, do you expect for the append methods of BlobBuilder to be
expanded beyond text and Blob inputs?  For example, how would one
capture the bytes of an image or a video object into a Blob?

This is looking great...can't wait to use it!
