Perhaps it would be easiest to have .png automatically marked as binary
when committed to CVS? This way, mistakes like this won't happen - I'm
sure everyone has forgotten -kb at least once in their life :-)

To have CVS automatically mark newly committed .pngS as binary, do the

cvs checkout CVSROOT/cvswrappers
echo "*.png -k 'b'" >> CVSROOT/cvswrappers
cvs commit CVSROOT/cvswrapper

>From then on, anyone can commit a .png just like a normal file, and -kb
will be automatically added by CVS.

Hope this helps.
