Seems I again misunderstood what you meant with:

I had read that as introducing "user options", but you obviously meant
introducing options for changing the behavior using any means.

At least we agree that there's room for improvement.

Anyway, what I want to reach:

  (1) sort in files starting with a dot as if they had no dot

isn't that both possible with ls?  (2) obviously; I think (1) depends on
the system's language setting?
