Use a separate custom table (not posts) to handle file upload data (2 posts)

    The Problem:
    Website that has over 100 photos per post. Could possibly swell posts-table beyond 100K entries within a few years.

    The Dilemma:
    Would much rather stick to default WP UI for handling images/files with the built-in "Add Media" Uploader. I'd like to avoid using a separate File Gallery implementation if possible.

    The Question:
    Has anyone found a way to use your own custom table (example "files") to store the file-data, instead of using the posts table? (without having to hack core files)
