well, this is semantics.
the data you are including is a set of HRIRs.
to the best of my knowledge HRIRs are usually saved as WAVs (or similar 
formats, like AIFF), and the bundled into a group by meta-information 
like filenames, or paths.

of course you can decode the binary WAVs to a a human readable textfile 
(like earplug_data.txt).

(the comments of earplug_data.txt illustrate what i want to say)

i still think, that the WAVs should be included in the CVS and the 
earplug_data.txt (or earplug~.h) should be generated from them.
you might gain precision with a smaller memory footprint.

but of course, i actually don't really care about it.
but i think, such practices are rather bad examples on why we should not 
have CVS diffs included any more.
