Anything you can store in a file system, you can store in a
Subversion repository. Well, almost. You can't store symlinks in it
on Windows, and you can't store devices in it. But normal files and
directories, no problem.

If these are well-behaved text files, then with Subversion you can
merge changes between revisions of the files. If they're binary files
and want to be able to merge changes, you'll need an appropriate diff
tool programmed to know how to deal with that binary format. For
example there is a binary merge program for Microsoft Word files.
