Of course, this will break scripts that invoke df under a pseudo tty.
Like from expect or through a telnet connection.

I'd say, if that change must be done, make it an option.  It's bad
enough that ls changes it's behaviour depending on whether the output
is to a tty or not.

Besides, it doesn't add anything to the current thread.
