Don't be silly, Greg; abusing other software wouldn't be nearly as amusing...

BTW, I *do* get it; I just don't agree with you.  I've spent most of 20+ years 
listening to people just like you explain why something shouldn't/couldn't be 
done, and then finding ways to make it happen anyway.  Clearly, other people 
feel the same way, because CVS does support binary files after a fashion.  I 
just want them supported better.

Because I respect someone as certain of themselves as you are (even if you're 
wrong), I'll let you know what the answer is when I find it.

You people just don't get it.  CVS adheres to design principles that are
completely contrary to your requirements.  You CANNOT succeed with it
given your current goals!  It's irrelevant how many users have made the
wrong choice and are using CVS despite the fact that its design is
contrary to their goals.  A wrong choice is wrong no matter which side
you look at it from.

Please go find some other software to abuse, and hopefully this time
you'll choose some non-free software and you'll be able to pay it's
maintainers to change their design if it doesn't happen to fit your
goals!  Maybe you'll be lucky and you'll choose some non-free software
that has a significant "market share" too.
