We have no objection to images. I suggest, though, that you have
thumbnails which have links to the bigger images. Additionally,
we won't force limits on image size on you, but as a practical matter
I'd keep the full pictures below 200k.

Cvs is useless at doing diffs with images, but you can check them in
without a problem. Simply use 'cvs add -kb <image>'.
