If your binary files can be identified by file extension, then you can specify those file extensions in the cvswrappers file.  For example, I have Microsoft Word documents under revision control. They all have a ".doc" extension.  By placing the following line in cvswrappers, *.doc files anywhere are treated as binary:

        *.doc -k 'b' -m 'COPY'
