svn keyword expansion

Hi All,

My understanding is that the svn keyword expansion is performed on the
client side.

The above being the case, word doc files on the server should never be
corrupted due to keyword expansion related issues, because the keywords
are not expanded and stored on the server.

Therefore, how can I retrieve a MSword file without a client attempting
to perform keyword substitution.

I tried svn export http://.../ , alas that too substitutes keywords. I
know this because I have a txt file and a MSword file in the same

Any help is much appreciated.

I am aware that keyword expansion is not supported for MSWord (binary)
files http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2007-11/0801.shtml. I have *not*
got my self into a strife, but was interested in having a work around
for such an issue.
