That's a bit what I expected, and makes sense.  I would welcome ls-lisp
to become the default, btw.

Sorting in dired could generally be improved a lot.  If you want sorting
by size, you need to edit the switches, which is not very handy (there
are addons for that job).  I needed to define the whole
`dired-sort-toggle-or-edit' because it hardcodes -t whereby I prefer -c.

That would be a really good thing (if it doesn't slow down things).  But
before this is reality ... could I please get my `ls-lisp-string-lessp'
defined as a function?
