Blobs are fine, they're async anyway. To store one you'd just need to let 
the blob know that you need a checkpoint. The actual storage in 
localStorage can all be done in the background. The feature that was 
problematic with localStorage wasn't Blobs, it was ImageData, and that 
should still be blocked.
