Then why does the file have a .cfg extension if it's not text? Can't you
use another extension?

How would that work? Just the filename? That would then apply to all
files that have that name - and since you've chosen a very common
extension and the filename itself isn't that uncommon either, you could
end up with problems for those other files.
And specifying a path won't work either, because TSVN diffs not just
local files but also files from repositories which use urls, not paths.
