Actually if you use -ko it will might work just fine, as long as you don't
cross between w32 and unix (in either direction).

Basically, any revision control system which doesn't try to do line-ending
conversion (and other such things) should work just fine: the files are not
exactly text, but a text-based diff tool will still get useful compression
(though merging will generate corrupt files IIRC).

A better alternative: don't use the Word format.
