mime-type usage?

Does Subversion care about mime-type in any way except for text
vs. non-text for diff/merge?

It would be a big headache if I had to go through each file in the
repository an set the mime-type.

I was thinking about that... Trouble is, it breaks 'svn diff'. And a
lying mime type might cause all sorts of other problems, if not with
Subversion than perhaps with other software. So it's not a very
pleasant workaround.
