Thank you for the response.

I separated the line into two.  I revised the doc string to infer
option and default explicitly.  Please modify it if unclear.

I think `dired-mouse-find-file' should behave similar to <RET>
`dired-find-file'.  For visiting a file in this window, the most
similar function to `dired-find-file' with similar argument to
`find-file-other-window' is `find-file'.  For visiting a directory in
this window, the most similar function to `dired-find-file' with
similar argument to `dired-other-window' is `dired'.  Also there was a
typo.  On summary, current defaults are shown below.

    (or find-file-func (setq find-file-func 'find-file))
    (or find-dir-func (setq find-dir-func 'dired))

I attach Change Log and a patch relative to the latest Git version.

I hope this meets your comments!
