My latest thought in that area is like I listed above except omitting the --diff-all option entirely -- after all, nobody has requested it and it doesn't seem especially useful to me.  Obviously we need the --show-all-paths option for back-compat.  (If your suggestion of '--full-revision' meant 'show all paths and show all diffs', then that would not be suitable for back-compat, would it, because what we need is show all paths but no diffs.)
