On the one hand, it's cool that you have the freedom to change the
code like this. :-)

On the other hand, there are much, much simpler ways to accomplish
this. Just attach an svn:mime-type property to all your .resx files
which is something non-texty (i.e. not text/*). The diff engine will
automatically skip over any file that the client thinks isn't text.
