Does anyone use hg/git/svn for version control of PSDs/binary files?

Does anyone use hg/git/svn for version control of PSDs/binary files?

I'm not dealing with 1-50 KB JPEGs, but 150-250+ MB psd files for various websites, and I'd like to keep track of the versions with a VCS.

"I have to say I mostly sill revision control text. I strive to get as much information in text format as I can. That said, I have used svn to control binary data files for years. No personal experience with your file format, but recently I've been mucking about alot in excel & access and especially for the access files they got quite large. 50MB was typical. TortoiseSVN has a very nice windows svn interface and and NautilusSVN is the linux/gnome equivalent.

The thing I like about revision control of excel files with TortoiseSVN will show you your differences between 2 excel files side by side. Handy when you need it."
