It maybe a bit less work, but it's certainly not "better" -- without the
auto-adjustment feature, it "simply" would use absurdly large amounts of
whitespace _just in case_ a file happens to be hundreds of gigabytes in size
and have thousands of links.  I'd rather reserve the limited space available
in my dired windows for filenames (which overflow often enough even with
column compression).

Come now, if we were really planning to harm you, would we be waiting here, 
 beside the path, in the very darkest part of the forest?
