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
textual.

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:
