I don't think quantile regression makes much sense for binary
variables. Any quantile of a binary regression can only be 0
or 1 (maybe one arbitrary number in between if the order 
statistic required for your quantile isn't an integer). So 
whatever you do, you should end up with either a horizontal line
at 0 or 1, or a step function switching between 0 or 1. 

Hope this helps,
Maarten
