  Could it be as simple as treating text->binary and binary->text
conversions
  as "all lines changed"? Unless you have filetype-sensitive diffing,
  you can't do much more IMHO.

  If rolling backwards to calculate blames, this'd imply that you would have
  accounted for all lines at the first text vs binary switch you encounter,
  whichever direction the switch is in. You can only blame back as far
  as the first text/binary or binary/text switch. If you want to blame
  further than that, you'll have to specify a revision range.
