Actually, your question probably need to be expanded.

What, precisely, do you mean by "is treated as text"? That is, are
you talking about end-of-line translation, or keyword substitution, or
responsiveness to 'svn diff' and/or 'svn merge', or some combination
thereof, or something else entirely?

If you're just interested in mime-types, our (not entirely
satisfactory) solution for now is the function
svn_mime_type_is_binary() in subversion/libsvn_subr/validate.c. See
