I assume that some sort of flag in the entries file is needed to
remember this setting to remember this flag after a commit.

Did the developers ever have a discussion about where to pull the
text-base wanted/unwanted flag from?

I see at least three possibilities:

 1) Local configuration option per repository (per filetype or other?)

GUI's would be able to share the setting with the command line.

 2) Optional server side properties per file

Would work well for extremely large teams and repositories with mixed
code and assets. You would probably still want the code to have
text-base, but for large binary assets you would want to disable it.

 3) Command line option like suggested above

Does not make it easy to checkout repositories with mixed code and
assets. Users are required to pass the option each time they update.
Good for performance testing, unit tests, and automated processes that
do not need text-base (on the same machine as a seperate copy of the
repository that has text-base).
