I think from a usability perspective, it would suck to have to slap
text/plain onto all text files you check into Subversion, at least until
we have much better auto-props support. Most people are using
Subversion to use text files.

Also, we already try to detect binary files and put a mime type of
application/octet-string onto them, I think.
