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 could do it server side in a post-commmit hook that would run
another commit against the repository to add any missing svn:needs-locks
to binary files that were just commited. You just shouldn't change any
properties of files in the commit from the client.
