I don't want to act "bossy" in this matter.  I just stated my opinion;
if I'm in the minority, so be it.

After reading those discussions, I thought people did want that, but
if I'm mistaken, I of course don't insist on such a binding in Dired.

Like I said: I don't mind adding such a command.  It's only the need
for its keybinding in Dired that is IMO arguable.  What do others
think on this matter?
