Hmm... couldn't we merge those two configuration variables?
Here's the idea:
- Rename dired-hide-details-initially to dired-hide-details-default-mode,
  a new (global) minor mode which determines how new dired buffers show up.
- Make it so that toggling dired-hide-details-default-mode also toggles the
  dired-hide-details-mode in the current buffer.
This way, instead of setting dired-hide-details-propagate to t, users
can simply use dired-hide-details-default-mode instead of
