I'm a bit of an outsider so that should probably only be a fraction of a 
+1, but there is a lot of value in versioning your documents, images, 
office files.  Subversion is pretty good at handling binary files.  It 
can also be way less clunky than constantly uploading them in 
Confluence, via either the command line or Tortoise, etc.  Especially if 
you need to bundle them or perform bulk operations on them.

Unless maybe you're using some full blown content managements system 
like plone that has good versioning support, or maybe Confluence is good 
at that and I just haven't figured it out yet.
