No. Subversion was designed to track changes to files, it won't discard such
information. That said, there are a million possible solutions to your
problem, but neither of them necessarily includes the use of Subversion.

To distribute files, you could use a webserver (HTTP or FTP). For sharing
folders there is FTP, Windows shares, Appletalk(?) shares, NFS, rsync...

Your concern about the repository getting too big might even have a solution
in Subversion: you could create a dedicated repository only for those files
and regularly remove old versions via a dump/dumpfilter/reload cycle. Of
course, that means that you can't move to versions before that anymore.
