binary diffs

I searched users@ but didn't find any suitable topic with the answer
to the simple question: is it possible to download diffs for binary
files as is done for text files? When I do "svn co", svn client
downloads _entire_ binary files and diffs for text files. We have some
big binary files in our rep (.tar.bz2, ~150Mb each) and when it
changed I need to download them again again, wasting gigabytes of
traffic. It is written in svn manual that svn internally uses xdelta
to make diffs between different versions of files, including binary
files, but it seems to work only internally :( So is it possible to
download binary diffs and apply them locally as it done for text
files? Thanks!
