Hi folks,

I would like to suggest to introduce an environment variable
"LS_ARGS", holding the default arguments to ls (similar to $LESS).

This could help to simplify the user environment. You don't have
to create clumsy aliases for ls anymore, but you could set

        export LS_ARGS="--color=never --quoting-style=escape"

in your .bashrc without affecting foreign ls implementations (AIX,
OpenBSD, Solaris, etc).

Hopefully I wasn't too blind to see.
