But POSIX says nothing about --indicator-style=classify.
It may be that we'd like to change --indicator-style=classify to avoid appending
redundant slashes, which are indeed annoying, while keeping -F the way it is,
to stay compatible with POSIX. Or perhaps we could add a new --indicator-style
option that would avoid appending redundant slashes. Surely either one of these
would be a valid wish-list request?
