How do you merge audio files? :-)

svn can merge text files only.

I've not tried it, but it might be a bit slow, since it will be trying to
calculate binary deltas on those large files. And there will probably not
be much similarity between two versions of an audio file, so I believe
your repository will grow quite quickly. >

I don't want to put you off before trying yourself, but svn was primarily
meant for source code and documents. Surely, you'll have use for the
history features.
