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...
