How sane do you want it? You can commit binary files and this was possible from the first version of git. git-annex moves the big files out of the git repository. This simply complicates things, since now your files are spread over two systems. If you are afraid that the repository will grow too large, then you can use a shallow checkout 'git clone --depth 1' or truncate the history of a repository.
The project bup deals with large files more efficiently and uses the same pack format as git with an extension (new blob type) that stores fragments of files instead of whole files. By using a rolling checksum algorithm, there is a lot of overlap in fragments for similar files.
