InstantDB: Reducing the size of TEXT and BLOB fields


I just got finished importing a mySQL database to InstantDB and was a bit surprised to find that the tables are larger.  It appears that a separate file is created for each TEXT column in a table.  While the regular .tbl file is roughly the same size as the mySQL tables, the size of these additional files greatly increased the total size of database.
 
Are there any tricks to making blob fields smaller in Instant DB???
