whoops. i thought i fixed the various problems related to this ...
i tested it only on the kdm repo - a checkout of a freshly converted

fwiw, for rcs (and consequently cvs) _everything_ is a text file - the
diffs are always saved as line edits. the expansion only says how the
files should be transformed _after checkout_.
my voodoo _shouldn't_ have affected svn's idea about what are binary
files, so i'd suspect the files in the repo are already messed up. mind
looking at a dumpfile, coolo?
