Yes.  Why didn't I know about that?  Ah: 1. it is not anywhere in the
Dired Info manual.  2. it is way down on line 109 of the Dired-mode
help page [C-h m].  I mean in the computer world, we are always
staring at "up" and "back" buttons.  They are important, so they
should be mentioned. Well, I hope they will please at least put it in
the info and mode help main description.

Hmm, speaking about "back" buttons, Info has "l", but how about a
general one for emacs.
