I certainly agree with that part. Anything which makes diff/merge on
binary files easier is a real bonus feature.

Does that mean that if the user already set up another association to
handle .doc files, then we don't overwrite it?

One feature which would make this whole area a bit easier would be if
the diff/merge tools could be enabled/disabled with a check box rather
than deleting the entry from the table. The problems with deleting the
entry are: a) you throw away all the information, so it's hard work to
re-install the entry. b) you have no record that the tool was ever
installed, so on next upgrade, TSVN will put that entry back in again.

Sorry Stefan, I am proposing ideas again without being able to implement
them myself :-(
