I can see and agree with Miles's point. If the maintainer of dired can
be brought on board and a few people (that understand dired well) can
work out a plan off line as a first step to re-organise dired code, we
might be able to make a move on this.

It often happens in Emacs that tons of people are voicing their opinions
and nothing gets done in the end. I remember once RMS agreed to bring
some functions from cl.el to emacs core, which is a window of
opportunity missed.
