Re: is subversion useful for mainly binary projects?

You might want to read the Subversion book section on resolving conflicts
(http://svnbook.red-bean.com/html-chunk/ch03s05.html#svn-ch-3-sect-4.4) and
perhaps try some test files. If the conflict management process that is
currently in place still does not work for you, I suggest that you not
forget about Subversion. There are rumors of locking being implemented
relatively soon, and with that in place there might be no good reason to
continue to use CVS. Subversion won't work for everyone, but it is an
excellent system.
