I seem to recall that making files binary is a "bad thing",
as then ech version is stored/updated by replacing the complete
file.  Unfortunately my CVS manula is at work, so I can't check now.

Michel, if you have a remote writable CVS repository, could you have
an experiment with your dosish cvs command as follows?

  1. create a text file, say foo, with Unix's EOL
  2. cvs add foo
  3. cvs commit -m"to make it binary" foo
  4. cvs admin -kb foo
  5. rename foo bar
  6. cvs update -A foo
  7. compare foo with bar

If you obtain foo with Unix's EOL after the step 6, Camm or anyone
committer can fix the kflag of *vers on the gcl repository and it
should work well perhaps.
