binary safe?

I'm currently about to abandon CVS for my website management,
replacing it with git.

What problems, if any, will I have using git to manage the binary
files for my site, like the custom icons?  CVS is doing that just fine

I presume emailing diff-patches is out of the question, but if all I'm
doing is git-push and git-pull (using the shared central repository
model), and if I'm stupid enough to have a merge error it's OK to just
blow up on a binary file, will everything else work fine?
