Tramp uses ls-lisp only in case it cannot use a native method on the
remote host. Experience shows, that ls-lisp has a much worse performance
for remote directories than native implementations.

I would oppose to make ls-lisp the default, and to add functionality to
it which would not be available otherwise. Such additional functionality
must be added to file name functions with a file name handler, if
desired.
