Most VCS are indeed designed for human-generated, line-oriented text files.
Right, that is their primary use.
At the core of every single VCS sit "diff" and "patch", totally useless for binaries.
Wrong. At least, git does not
use any kind of "diff" + "patch" at it's core. It (optionally!) uses
's format to represent differences between similar file contents to get a more compact representation, and that works fine on binaries.
