I think I favor the current approach for the default -v output.  If you
just want to see the filenames, that seems like it should be a separate
option.  Perhaps using the suggested -s to mean "show me the file names"?
That's my opinion, anyway.

It's cool that you included a patch with your suggestion, though.
