        Not that I'm aware of, I think you have to supply the -kb

        If you commit the binary file without -kb, and it happens to contain
        strings like $Id:$ (or others) then they will be replaced with:
        $Id: makefile,v 1.48 2002/03/08 17:43:42 crafterm Exp $

        which won't be good thing and could corrupt the file.
