Maybe --quiet could be used to skip outputting file names.

I don't think overloading --quiet this way is helpful.

Changing *sum's output format should use a new option IMHO (if one wants
to add this functionality and the maintainers do not object).

This has already been discussed:

  "*sum --no-filename to only output the checksum.
   Postprocessing the output was deemed sufficient"

Have a nice day,
