Not completely. First, you can change the svn:mime-type property,
but Subversion regards some textual media types as binary. The
textiness would be better handled by another property or even by
svn:eol-style; indeed, if a file has end-of-lines, then it is

Now, even if the current revision of the file is regarded as text,
"svn blame" will be affected by the fact that the file was binary
in a past revision. This is the following bug:
