I've been following the discussion about switching to a distributed source
control mechanism, and it's problem associated with binary data. According
to previous chat here on the list, it is not yet decided which way we
should go.

What is the problem with binary data? Is it the big file size or slowness
when checking for diffs?
If big files are the problem, I just found this
http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/LargefilesExtension which could help
solve the problem.
