That's OK if I need to add/commit only text files (like .c, .cpp or .pas), but if I need commit binary files this information can be helpfull. For example I never add MSVC projects to SNV repositary. Project direcory contain many files with strange extention (like for examlpe .tbs). If this file small (100-200 bytes) - I don't need to check If this file is critical for compilation, but if this size above 1MB, I will check it. Yes, I'm understand, that real programmer shoud know this things, but this future may be helpfull for not-masters.
May be this future can be optional? And turn on by checking combo box in settings menu?
