It invokes "--textconv" by default, and allows to override with
"--no-textconv. That's what I meant to say but seem to have failed to.

I think at some point we decided to have "human output" on by default
for all things diff (porcelain only, of course) unless the diff is meant
for machine consumption, such as in the case of format-patch.

This series' aim is to make the textconv behavior the same for all
"human output" commands. I don't see textconv and ext-diff to be
strongly related, and if then the other way round:

textconv is about converting blobs to a (possibly lossy) human
consumable text.

ext-diff is about computing diffs with an external diff "tool" (not in
the sense of diff-tool).

One way of diffing is textconving blobs then using internal diff on the
resulting text blobs, but ext-diff is more general and, really,
orthogonal in a way. (It used to be used often for what textconv does
when that didn't exist.)

I don't think I changed anything ext-diff related, did I? 1/4 is about
showing blobs, not diffs.
