That's absolutly bogus nonsense.

Some 90% of the sources are _text_files_.  (10% or whatever are graphics.)

A text file is a text file is a text file.

CVS knows the difference [for a reason].

If I'm on a 390, I have a bunch of ebcdic files.  So what?  They are text.
They don't go into a repository as binary, unless they have some really bizzare
formatting or escapes in them.

I'm fixing my file that will cleanly translate the line endings on
a unix or dos machine into unix or dos.  Then anyone can use zip on unix to create
the win32 image.  The only hangup?  Perl's utime isn't doing what I expected on
Unix, so it's touch'ing the date stamps when I coded it not to.

There will be no binary .dsp or .dsw files in cvs.  ever.
