The actual subset is more complicated than just "*.resx", and since this
repository contains thousands of files, I think it would be impractical to
expect people to manually set these properties for individual files. It
makes more sense to have a global wildcard that can be updated from time to
time when new problems appear. Also, IIRC the "svn:mime-type" property
affects all diffs, but in most interactive contexts people would want to
see differences.

The idea of using properties makes sense, but maybe if a directory property
recursively applied to its contents. Can you think of any other simpler
solutions?

Cheers,
