Heheh, thanks guy, I hadn't thought of that. 
FWIW, one can handle binaries with CVS too. Files have to be flagged as such 
(or CVS has to be configured to associate file extensions for binaries) and 
it takes a lot more space than text, but it works.

So, how about having the "save" bits be smart enough to hand things off to 
CVS? Could be the mother of all patch librarians.
