Depends. But I think that writing a frontend which would ask a
confirmation about all the files about to be marked as binary would be an
acceptable solution in most cases.

Even in Windows. CVSNT and CVS repositories are compatible, so you can
just copy a NT repository over to a unix box. The same goes for
servers: linefeed replacements operate equally regardless of server
OS. The cross-mounting is the problem, as already stated here.
