 again, quoting parts of [browser:buildouts/plone-
 coredev/branches/4.0/plips/plip7822-review-optilude.txt at 29687 martin's
 review] to be able to provide comments inline:

 > * We should make BLOB files and images the default for non-migrated

 as already mentioned, this is the case as of r30057.  new content will use
 blobs, old content will remain untouched and functional, and can be
 updated using the provided migration views.

 this was in fact a bug, that has been fixed in the meantime (see r29875).
 the new types should use the original permissions, i.e. "ATContentTypes:
 Add File" etc, in order to be fully compatible with existing sites.
 unfortunately, the bug was nicely hidden away due to the way test layers
 are stacked up.

 i'm not sure if the FTIs need to be present for existing, unmigrated
 content.  if not, i can make sure they're not exposed anymore.  hmm,
 unless i've misread this so far and it is the plone control panel you're
 referring to here?  in this case, yes, they should not be visible.

 the fixed version of the monkey patch wasn't properly applied in Zope
 2.12. this was fixed in r30019 — the message shouldn't appear anymore.

 this is a known issue and will have to be addressed (see ticket #8506).
 the fix should be rather straight-forward, though — i think i have a patch
 someone sent me for this.

 this is already the case for existing content.  or do you mean using blobs
 for new content should also be opt-in (for existing sites)?
