Please quit trying to change the topic.  My sentence about POSIX
codifying the existing practice of 'ls' using different output to tty
than it does to a pipeline is unrelated to your attempt to drag in 'rm'
behavior to every single bug report.  Whether or not 'rm' behavior
changes have occurred over time, and whether such changes were codified
by POSIX as existing practice, are not relevant to the current topic of
'ls' changing behavior.
