No.  XML files are text files and should be treated as such to get
correct line endings.  If you really don't want merging, then use
*.xml -m 'COPY' instead, but merging XML usually works just fine.

They are text, but UNICODE, which CVS can't handle properly, so you are better off to deal with them as binary.

Has anyone come up with a viable diff/merge tool for XML?
