I just have one question: if I have a binary file that happens to end in
.gz I assume everything will be safe?

I've never actually used binary files in my svn tests yet, so I dont
even know if they even make their way into the text base but if they do,
you'd better make sure that your scheme does not erroneously detect that
as a file I manually decided to gzip to save space.
