I'm not sure this is a right solution either.  The code has been in
there for only a few days; I don't really have any significant
experience with using it yet.  At the moment the biggest problem I've
seen is that shell glob order differs from ls output order.  I'm
considering adding a knob to change my shell's globbing order.

I still consider this code very experimental.  It's not even in /bin/ls
on my systems; it's in ~mouse/.local/bin/ls.
