I can :)

I spend my days writing "code" in LabVIEW. In short, it's a graphical
programming language. Its files are a sort of combination of source code
and binary. We have our projects organized around a common framework The
framework is included in the projects using externals. Don't ask me why,
but recompiling a project also recompiles some framework files. As a
result this marks them as modified for Subversion. And when committing
the project we really don't want to have those framework files committed
as well.

I know it is not Subversion's fault this happens, but it is a use-case
for not committing external files.

Cheers, Mike
