Delphi Forms using CVS

Does anybody use CVS for controlling Delphi source-code?

If so, should Delphi Forms (*.dfm) be treated as text or binary files (or as 
required via the "cvs admin" operation)?

It would seem that they're typically text files, however under certain 
circumstances they appear to embed binary data. I'm hesitant to treat all forms 
as binary-files, as this stops CVS from merging them during updates - something 
that typically works well.

Is it possibly to externalise this embedded binary data to a resource (*.res) 

Many thanks,
