Actually, I prefer the current behavior.  If for some reason my terminal gets 
into a strange mode where the color of the text is changed and difficult to 
read, all I need to do is run an 'ls' command, and the colors will be restored 
to normal.

I can see where these extra characters might be a concern back in the day when 
we were all using 300 baud modems, but in today's high-speed environments, are 
these extract escape sequences really hurting anything?
