;; `dired-details-hide' makes dired buffers that look like this:

;; The function `dired-details-toggle' will toggle details on and off.
;; To apply `dired-details-hide' to all new dired buffers, add the
;; following to your .emacs:
;; (require 'dired-details)
;; (dired-details-install)
;; This also binds the following keys in dired buffers:
;;   ) - dired-details-show
;;   ( - dired-details-hide
;; * 1.1: Setup hide and show keybindings earlier than the first hide.
;; * 1.1: add dired-details-initially-hide customization as suggested
by Harold Maier
;; * 1.2: extensive change to support subdirs in dired buffers
;; * 1.2.1: respect current hidden state (not initial state) when
inserting subdirs
;; * 1.3: dired-details-toggle and customization support added by Klaus
;; TODO:
;; * add a hook for dired-add-file to hide new entries as necessary
