I'm interested in binary file handling.

But what do you mean -- do you want darcs to do some kind of binary  
deltas and then merge them?  Sounds crazy.  Or do you just want it to  
be efficient in time and space to hurl big files around without  
applying patches to binaries?

By the way, one of the things that intrigues me is that the best open  
source compression tool out there is written in Haskell:


There might be some interesting advantages that a revision control  
tool could gain with the use of a good compression tool like that...
