Files that are large, binary, poorly-compressible, and which rarely
change are generally not stored in Subversion, for exactly the reason
If you are concerned about automatic backups or versioning, the perhaps
CVS would be a good choice.
If you are concerned about synchronization between multiple machines,
then Unison might be what you're looking for.
Does that help answer your question?
