However there are so many different filename extensions for
text files these days. I have a big list of the extensions.
It was a by-product of doing the re-licensing job on Cocoon
and Forrest. I am no Python dude, so if someone starts the job
then i can add these.

At Forrest we did a once-off recursive 'svn propset' to set
everything to "native" then went back and changed the binary files.
