Re: mime-type usage?

I think this is OK for me.

The development environment I'm looking at was designed in the 1980's,
long before the advent of MIME or any "recent" file type. The file
extensions chosen then have not been changed even if commonly used for
other purposes now.

Any attempt by SVN to guess at the type of a file beyond text/not-text
would be unlikely to succeed and would mean a lot of extra work in
converting to SVN.
