[PATCH] Issue 2213 - forcing some files to be considered binary (and thus making emails smaller)

From: Jon Bendtsen <jbendtsen_at_laerdal.dk>
Date: Fri, 16 Jan 2009 15:21:00 +0100

Hi

The attached PATCH is a alternative way of solving issue 2213,
but it is the nearest issue i can find.
        http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2213
The method used in this PATCH is a list of file endings which are
forced to be considered binary, even if they look like text to a diff.
We needed this because we have some programs that creates
some .prproj files which are video related and really big.

Naturally the configration file accepts a default list and
individual lists per group.

The PATCH is made against the latest? mailer.py from trunk,
revision 35280

Starting with revision 35280, this patch will cause complications
with some of the other patches that i will be sending shortly.

Applies fine:
        sameimportfix.txt

Fuzzy helps:
        header_detail.txt

Problems and errors:
        max_number_of_diffs.txt
        max_mail_size.txt
        max_diff_size.txt

My intention is that all the functionality in the patches should be
available, so i am willing to do some work to get them all to apply
cleanly or with fuzzy. I just dont know the order which to do it in,
and i figured that once big patch that gave all the functionality
would not be well liked.

6 patches will arrive
