As already said in practice it is already configurable by different kind 
of distro-specific techniques or shell aliases. For example openSUSE 
has envvar LS_OPTIONS. Maybe we could support such LS_OPTIONS variable 

For example I'm always using "--time-style=long-iso" and I guess many 
people would like to use different flavours.
