"We could add .pd files to the cvswrappers with the -kb tag, which is
the only specific 'binary' handling that CVS does server-side AFAIK.
All -kb does is prevent keyword expansion ($Revision $, $Id $, etc.).
   But I use those so I'd like to keep it in there.  I am pretty sure
that preventing merges happens on the client-side, since the actual
merge happens on the client side."

I'd like to keep it this way, if possible.
