Yes, -ko on the command line overrides the -kb you have in cvswrappers.

With a server that uses UNIX EOLs (single line feed) and a client that
uses the same, -ko should be equivalent to -kb, so you are getting
lucky.  If you tried the same import from WOE or an older Mac, or even a
later checkout of your -ko'd binaries to those platforms, you should
usually end up with corrupted binaries.

I suggest adding -ko for non-binary file types in your cvswrappers
file.  I believe the wrappers list is traversed first to last, so adding
"* -k 'o'" as the last line in the file should set a default and get you
the behavior you are looking for.  I might be wrong on order of
traversal though, so it may have to be the first line.  Let me know what
you discover about the order of the list traversal.
