Re: Search subversion binary content

Microsoft has not released the documentation for their
binary format. From this follows that Subversion cannot
make any meaningful binary diffs that you may edit in
case of conflicts, unless someone has reverse engineer
the format, of course.

An option with newer Subversion releases is to use the
"lock" mechanism.
