As a side note to this: what about Rob Giardinas patch to merge dired
details into dired?  Toggling between displaying just the filenames and the
full ls -l details makes it very clear what is being searched, and it's
also nice for other reasons.

The patch was sent 2007-07-22 with subject "[rob <at> giardina.us:
dired-details merged into dired]"


As far as I can see, nobody has posted review comments for the patch.  Is
it just too ugly?  Too incomplete?  Not an attractive feature?

The only annoyance I have with dired-details.el is that M-w copies the
hidden part too, which is not what I expect.  I'm using a horrible
buffer-substring-filters hack to prevent that locally (don't see how to do
it properly without switching from overlays to text properties).
