By now this is a fairly old patch, but still in need of review it seems.

I think this loop is going in the wrong direction (i.e., it should
rather be appending leading entries).  Because of this, it can be fooled
by subdirectories with a name matching a substring of a dirs entry:

    ~$ mkdir -p 'foo bar/bar/'
    ~$ cd 'foo bar/'
    ~/foo bar$ command dirs # M-x dirs
    # infloops...

I'm also not a fan of the somewhat inscrutable tem1 & tem2 names.
