Re: Binary files edited by several people

This doesn't address the main point of this thread, but I wanted to
note that there are some occasions where it's great to be able to
operate on diffs of binaries. For example, you may be maintaining a
bzip2 or gzip compressed log file in subversion.

Say you have log.bz2 checked in to subversion. You can then do

  $ my-program | bzip2 -c >> log.bz2
  $ svn commit -m blah log.bz2

appending to the compressed file. This can be a big win.
