So, this is the problem for the OS

        "How do I decide in what application to open this"

if, on attempted opening, no obvious hint is provided? Some OS achieve this 
through mapped file extensions (.PDF) and the Mac OS additionally manages at t 
he file level bits referred to as "creator" and "kind" however this no doubt 
falls apart when an object is created by a script into a database object "blob".

Any idea how Debian "decides" how to open the text blob "missing"?

Does postgres somehow communicate (to Debian) what "kind of blob content" is 
being passed to the OS? If yes, maybe I can google some way Mac OS can also 
understand such instructions.
