In dired if one uses ^u s and adds -latu, the modeline still says
'dired by date'.  Only if one does something radical like adding -X
does it say otherwise.

I say still saying "dired by date" is misleading in the case of -tc,
-tu etc.  Why the cover-up?

This loss of information one day will lead to somebody making some
disastrous decision thinking he is seeing -t information when forgot
he had set -tu before he went to the wash room and his zipper got
stuck so he couldn't leave.  [Happened to me at age 4.  At the time I
had never been instructed what to do next in such a case...]
