What's wrong with using --force option for such files? These are not
that common so that should not be much hassle. Also if they are small I
do not see any reason why not to put them directly into the git
Or maybe the condition for need of the force flag could be modified to
not require it for files larger than some size (for example 100kBytes)
even if 'file' outputs that they are a text files.
No matter how far down the wrong road you've gone, turn back.
