No, the executable part is the svn:executable property. It has nothing to 
do with the MIME type.

However, the MIME type of anything that isn't text/* makes Subversion 
refuse to show diffs, instead relying on binary diffs internally. So, 
just fix the MIME type for every file you see that is wrong.
