My assumption was that (as for the first bit) that not translating the
"total x" thing wouldn't be catastrophic, so that could be adjusted

As for the other implementations, I assumed that they would just
continue to work as is, and if they do that "total" transformation, it
would be trivial to just remove that bit.

If this causes major problems, I'm sorry.

I implemented this first as a part of insert-directory.  But the problem
is that it's dired itself that prepends the /current/path/name at the
top, so the thing had to go to dired.
