RE: Automatic 'svn:needs-lock' property for binaries?

If there's no way to do it server-side, then I'd still like to hear if it could be done client-side... Without needing to use autoprops and scanning for extensions. SVN already knows that a file is binary, so why would I have to guess at that again and with more limited knowledge? (I'm not so interested in accurate mime-type determination for instance. I'm just interested in all binary files automatically getting the svn:needs-lock, to make ppl worry less about conflicting edits. I think it's important to the ppl here where I would like to try introducing SVN as alternative to VSS)

You can use autoprops to set this property for certain file extensions
when files are added.

Unfortunately, this is a client-side configuration, but there are plans
for server-client configuration support of some form.
