BTW, I'm guessing that some of the features that `ls-lisp.el'
offers could be extended to Dired for the case where it is
not used, i.e., the case where `ls' is used.

For example, `ls-lisp.el' advises `insert-directory' so that
it uses `ls-lisp--insert-directory', and that lets you do
things like insert "/foo/*", meaning insert all of the files
(and subdirs) in directory foo, that is, its contents and not
just a single line for the directory.  Without using ls-lisp,
trying to do that results in:

 insert-directory: Reading directory: no such file or
                   directory, /foo/*

Perhaps `insert-directory' could be enhanced to do a little
more of what `ls-lisp--insert-directory' does?
