You are right this doesn't help with all cases. Though you could rename the
binary or put them each in a folder with the revision number to keep them
separate. Wouldn't it be better to have at least the latest binary in there
then nothing at all? ( if you cant remove the files regularly( easily ) and
don't have space for each change then you cant include them at all... ) As a
note this would not stop anybody from versioning all the files including the
binaries, it is only giving the people who maintain/use the repo more
options to choose from.
