Hi Nicolás,

-> You "real world example" is invalid. Storing executables/build
-> results in a *source* control system is wrong.

I disagree.

Subversion is a *version* control system. Binary data is valid,
and it seems obvious that the Subversion developers acknowledge
this and have designed and catered for it (mime-types, locking,
etc). For that I am grateful.

We use Subversion extensively for source control as well as
release control. One example at my work would be in-house
and third party application upgrades. We compile upgrade and
installation executables and versioning releases means that
we have a clear history of what has been released, when it
was released, and why. This is all nicely tied together using
log messages and the `bugtraq` properties integrated into our
issue tracking system.

Having both the source and binary versioned using the same
tools makes life just that little bit easier.
