Except for platforms where ls-lisp does not understand the underlying
file system in the same way as the external tool.

For example, on windows the permissions from ls-lisp are fairly
meaningless, and do not match what is reported from MSYS, MSYS2 or
Cygwin versions of ls (all of which have different filesystem paths and
different permissions semantics).

Please keep things the way they are.
