It turns out that the binary diff doesn't occur at the layer we've
been talking about.

On a commit, Subversion sees all files, binary and text, as streams
of data directly from the network. The algorithm intelligently
notices differences in those streams regardless of the overlaying
file type. (In a local working copy, however, the svn command uses
a classic contextual diff where applicable.)

So, throw in your kitchen sink, full of dirty dishes; Subversion
doesn't care.
