It seems we would need separate --label options for
the text and binary cases, as you may want to include the timestamp (or
any other extra information) for regular diff output, while you only
want the file names in the binary case. Maybe we need a new option
--file-name for the latter?

Yes, it does appear that the options need to be rethought. Also, there needs to be a better way to indicate symlinks and special files; that's a related issue.
