Using Subversion for storing documents

I was wondering if anyone is using Subversion for storing binary documents
in addition to source code. I am interested in storing Word, Excel and
OpenOffice documents. Since Subversion stores binary files very
efficiently I thought it may be an OK solution to the problem. Please let
me know if better opensource tools exist for this purpose.

When the document list gets large I would like to be able to search for
documents. I looked around and did not see any support for searching for
files in any of the available Subversion tools. I was thinking of building
a very basic search tool on top of 'svn list --recursive'. But if a better
tool already exists then I would like to use that instead.
