We did exactly that. We use Delphi and in the early days of Delphi the form files were binary.
There is now a text version of the form file and we wanted to convert to the text form as it makes
it much easier to version control and trace changes. We actually moved from CVS to Subversion so we
could do this! The files were imported into Subversion in their original binary form and then
converted to the text version and the properties changed to they were treated as text.
