When I import a third-party library into my CVS, I specify -ko. The problem
is that if the import contains files that are binary (as set in
CVSROOT/cvswrappers), they are also tagged -ko and not -kb ... which means
when I do a checkout, the binary files are corrupted.

Is there any way to get around this?

At the moment the only solution I could think of is to import with no -k
option, then use admin to set -ko on all the files that I just imported that
have keywords in them.
