Okay. I can't help but sound a little bit like an ass on this one...

I just can't believe that after all this time I still can't run ls and
get a listing sorted directories before files. I've been waiting for
this option for years. I've always thought, surely someone would get
around to it eventually. After all. it has to be the most obvious
directory sorting in the bloody universe. As is made dumbfoundingly
evident by the default behavior of every graphical file browser known
to man.

Once more, there is even a patch floating around out there for this.
It's been over a year since I last dug it up, but I'll dig it up again
if need be. I suspect however, that this is a very simple fix for
someone who knows a little about the innards of the coreutils.

Please, can we put this simple little annoyance to rest once and for
