 It isn't actually the -A flag that you're complaing about, but the
 normal behaviour of BSD ls when run by root, which has been the way it
 is on NetBSD essentially forever (closer to 1983 than 1993) - well
 before there ever was a -A flag.
 I doubt very much that almost anyone is going to be interested in
 altering this behaviour after all this time - aside from anything else
 it would break backward compatability for any scripts that assume it.
 Just close this PR...
