T-L mode is not suitable for Dired, because not every line is an
"entry", i.e. the first two summary lines---which are also the reason
why Dired does not use the header line.  Other Dired features, like
showing multiple directories, also break T-L mode assumptions.

One mode that could be usefully converted to use T-L mode is Buffer Menu
mode.  Maybe we'll get round to that in a future major Emacs version.
