Git Flat Archive

An flat archive file format suitable for Git - diff-friendly.

[file/path.txt]
cH3ck5uM
plain content

[binary.png]
cH3ck5uM
a1 b2 c3 d4
e5 f6

Ideas:

In binary files, do render as a grid, but instead of full-on hex, let's render ASCII in plain text and only non-text characters as hex codes? (As well as some inconvenient characters like \r and \n.) Also parsing should support both forms in cells.

This could be integrated with modern-office-git-diff to avoid having to manage directories and instead use file only.
