Sorry for the incomplete message!

Then , we can also have ls -a print out (parts of) these summaries whenever
available depending upon some option passed to ls. I tried to achieve this
for myself by creating a bash function, but that (naturally) goes into
infinite recursion and is not a very neat way to do it IMHO.
This is just a proposal and if many people like it, I'm ready to work on it
:)

Thanks
