Re: svn and "mostly-binary" repositories

My suggestion about rsync was only a part of the problem. Optimizing the
transfer of the binary file once it has been detected that they are
different is only a second step. And after all it's not that important
since individual binary files we are working on never get really big, so
they could go through HTTP just fine.

The main problem I think is how to decide wether the local binary file is
different from the repository one. Implementing a comparison by hashing
the file would make sense I think, since it doesn't make a lot of sense to
apply the patching techniques of svn to binary files.
