I don't know whether they're text files in the SVN eol-style "native"
sense.  The corresponding file types under VC 6 were not:  in SVN
terms, they should have svn:eol-style set to CRLF (Visual Studio
required \r\n line ends for some inscrutable reason -- it would not
tolerate \n line ends, and this mattered when, e.g., some Linux-head
tried to run Visual Studio from a Linux-native checkout of Python;
CRLF was still required, and we "faked that" under CVS by calling
those files binary; SVN offers finer control; I don't know how picky
the .NET 2003 MSDev is about this).
