Re: Text mime types

Hi,

I ran into this with application/xml. The MIME-type is by the way in my
opinion correct, as stuff like XML or XHTML is only partially usable for
humans.

The annoying thing about that is that there is no possiblity to override
subversions behaviour, at least none that I know of. E.g. "svn diff" on
a "application/xml" file always refuses to work, and there is no --force
switch or something similar.

It should be either (client side?) configurable which MIME-types are
considered binary, or at least a --force-text switch, or better both.

Issue 1002 covers the client side configure part, but not the --force-text.

Regards,
Martin
