I'd rather not see this command bound to a key.  How about just
putting it in a menu?
That's a nice suggestion.  Thank you.


I bind `_' to `dired-show-file-type' (dired-aux.el), which is bound
by default to `y'.  I bind `y' to a command that makes a relative
symbolic link to the file on the cursor line.  This is in keeping
with `Y' for `dired-do-relsymlink' and `%Y' for
After re-thinking the issue, i am reluctant to set a binding for
this: that could make clashes with Dired+, reducing discoverability
of useful features.

Having the command defined in Emacs means that users just need 1 line
in their config file to set their binding of choice.  That's cheap.

I will implement Eli's comments during this weekend and back here with
an updated patch.

Thank you
