Greg, as someone else pointed out.  It's a rare project that does not have a
few binary files peppered in the source for various reasons.  Although, in
your mind it would make the most sense to maintain those in a seperate
facility, in my opinion, it's stupid and inefficient.  Just because you
don't need to merge those binary files doesn't mean you don't want to keep
track of their history, etc.   As others have pointed out, cvs handles them
just fine if you use the -kb option.

I agree with you that people ask a lot of stupid questions, but I'm sorry..

And in rebuttle to your comment.. there is no right tool for the job.  Why
the holy fscking hell would you think we use cvs for what we use it for if
there was something better out there?  There isn't.. so we are making the
best with what we have.  Can't you see that?  Or is your idealism so great
that you couldn't possibly understand why we would think cvs is good enough
to try to use for more than what *you* think it's good for?
