If "ls" determines that it is sending output to a terminal, it automatically
assumes the -C and -q flags.

But what if I don't want -q?  I do not see a way to turn off that behavior.

While -q may be safe to keep binary characters from echoing to the terminal,
it seems that it shouldn't be a default behavior, especially if it can't be
turned off, since ls can easily be aliased to "ls -q" if that's what one
really wanted.

If I have missed something, please let me know.  Otherwise if it's a bug,
I'll send-pr.
