WebDAV/DeltaV doesn't care about a text/binary difference.
The repository DeltaV is using (VCS) can also calculate diffs for binary files
for efficient storage of versions. So probably the answer to your question is yes.

Probably I'm the collaborator by adding some more stuff :-)

I volunteer to transform "http://webdav.ethz.ch/nodav/src/no.WebDAV.Tool"
to a most basic WebDAV HOW2 if you and others are giving me feedback what to add
or to change. IMHO it's already a basic HOW2 but YMMV.
Later it can be copied to e.g. "http://webdav.ethz.ch/index.html".
