Not storing temporaries is an obvious 'best practice' for any SCM, but
there is often a requirement to store the built objects - eg the exes,
dlls or other binary targets.

If you do store binaries in SVN, then you can get them out easily
without re-building them. Often a implementation, project or QA person
will not have the skills or setup required to re-build, so needs to have
the binaries pre-built. If they're stored in SVN, then they can also get
the correct version without worrying that what they get to re-build will
be what was originally shipped.

We store all shippable binaries in SVN, and use svn:externals to help
ease fetching them from the repository.
