All I would add is that in our experience, we've seen many instances of
binaries stored under version control - specifically the images that are
part of websites/e-commerce platforms, and of course the images that are
the pixmaps in GUI applications - two common cases of things needing
version control.

As such, any improvements to binary handling are always quite welcome
should you have occasion to consider doing so.
