That would cover the whole switch processing algorithm,
`ls-lisp-handle-switches', 60 lines of code.  I would shadow any future
change in that code by redefining that huge function.  That's why I
wanted to avoid that.

What's the advantage of `ls-lisp-string-lessp' being a defsubst?  If it
really makes it significantly faster (it's called a lot of times, of
course), then ok, let's keep it.


Thanks,

Michael.
