That's not possible. How would you show a diff for a binary file?
So that's why there are no binary patchfiles at all. Ok, I admit some
version control systems actually have binary patches, but those systems
don't have a central repository and therefore they have to pass the data
(which Subversion sends directly to the repository) around.
