Maybe not, but people here and on emacs-devel do influence Emacs

Anyway, we had this discussion almost exactly a year ago (in July
2005, to be exact).  There really isn't anything to be said that
wasn't already said then.  Let's not waste any more time by
reiterating the same arguments.

Also mentioned in past discussions: ls-lisp behaved like that since
day one (which was in Emacs 19).  Back then, we didn't have the
customizable options we have today that can be used to get the
Explorer-like behavior.
