RE: svn resolve: just what does it do?

I thought about using MIME type, but that adds additional issues like
storing the MIME type <-> file pattern mapping information, versioning
that, etc...

Additionally, the way Subversion currently records that a file is being
treated as binary tweaks the MIME type property. This seems completely
backwards, just set a property that says it's binary and get on with it.
