I wonder if you can do something along the lines of the attached
patch.  The following discussion assumes that your default wants
textconv for generating patches, and no textconv for showing blobs,
which is the case your "it is a bit" becomes an issue.

The basic structure is that:

 * There is an extra "opt->touched_flags" that keeps track of all
   the fields that have been touched by DIFF_OPT_SET and

 * You may continue setting the default values to the flags, like
   commands in the "log" family do in cmd_log_init_defaults(), but
   after you finished setting the defaults, you clear the
   touched_flags field;

 * And then you let the usual callchain to call diff_opt_parse(),
   allowing the opt->flags be set or unset, while keeping track of
   which bits the user touched;

 * There is an optional callback "opt->set_default" that is called
   at the very beginning to lets you inspect touched_flags and
   update opt->flags appropriately, before the remainder of the
   diffcore machinery is set up, taking the opt->flags value into

Your "git show" could start out with ALLOW_TEXTCONV set, but notice
explicit requests to --[no-]textconv from the command line in your
set_default() callback.  And then when it deals with a blob, check
if the user touched ALLOW_TEXTCONV and appropriately act on that

There would be three cases in your set_default callback:

 * flags has ALLOW_TEXTCONV set, and the bit was touched: the user
   explicitly said --textconv because she wants blobs to be mangled;

 * flags has ALLOW_TEXTCONV set, and the bit was not touched: the
   user did not say --textconv; do not mangle blobs;

 * flags has ALLOW_TEXTCONV unset; the user did not say --textconv,
   or explicitly said --no-textconv; do not mangle blobs.

The set_default callback can also be used to adjust defaults for
fields that are not handled by the DIFF_OPT_SET/CLR/TST, by the way.
You can remember the address of the default value you fed to a
string field before entering the callchain to diff_opt_parse(), and
in your set_default callback see if the value is still pointing at
the same piece of memory (in which case the user did not touch it).
