Well, it is possible to show differences in binary files. I know of at least
one program (HexWorkshop) that can show side-by-side diffs of binary files.

Can't subversion create patchfiles with binary data in it when you use svn
diff? In fact, I just created a patch file using Tortoise that consisted of
a single byte change to a binary file. It works fine.

I don't expect TortoiseMerge to have a human-readable display of the
differences (although it could), but I would at least like to be able to
apply a patch which contains binary data to my working copy. Surely this
must be possible somehow?

thanks a lot,
