Ladies,                                               *

You are in a dired buffer, with the cursor resting on, oh,

drwxr-xr-x   96 jidanni  jidanni      8192 02 28 04:41 somedir

do 1) hit RET
or 2) hit e
or 3) hit f

In each case you get "dired by name".  There are no keys that get you
dired by date, as a shortcut.  Three vs. zero gentlemen, I mean

Indeed, one must hit RET s, e s, or f s, to get to
dired-by-date... with the waste of an extra call.

Anyway, looks like a typical case of injustice... 3 to 0 fellas, I
mean gals.

By the way, that is from dired itself.  One should also make dired by
date analogs to C-x d for use from any buffer.

Some might say "what is your problem today, J****son? can't you just
hit s after you get there?"  I say "but why sort twice?  Try it on a
large directory, silly"

* I now have to make up for all the previous messages using
"Gentlemen," please excuse me.
