Thank you, Kai. That solved the problem. Seems like a nice feature for
tramp to have. Don't you think?

Here is my current setup:

(add-hook 'dired-before-readin-hook 'sdl:dired-set-remote-listing-switches)
(defun sdl:dired-set-remote-listing-switches ()
  (when (file-remote-p default-directory)
    (setq dired-actual-switches "-al")))
