Is it possible to use Perl in the macros?
Then you might not need persistency, Perl provides
file tests -B and -T to detect binary/text files.
This would give you a good guess (usually correct!)
to start with in most cases, and would thus reduce
the cases in which you would have to manually set
the text/binary status.
