FYI, I did some searching about busybox's "ls" and coloring, and it
seems like a known controversy/"shortcoming"- excerpted from a 2005
mailing list thread-

gnu "ls" uses the "--color" option as well, that's where busybox's
came from, so adding support for customizing that in tramp wouldn't be
completely irresponsible. As a BSD'er myself, it would be a waste for
me, but I'll live.
