Just one little question about this patch: are you sure not to add a
short option for --group-directories-first ?

For now, yes.  It would take a strong argument to go against the
`no new short option names' policy for ls, especially considering
the alternative mentioned below.

--group-directories-first is already in my ls aliases ;)
but in this month I had to use other linuxes where those aliases were
not defined, and I realized that typing --group-directories-first for
such a useful feature is IMHO really annoying...

Did you know that you can abbreviate that option with `--g',
since there is no other long option name starting with `g'?
No I didn't - that's very useful; thanks !
