One big difference though: your "git ls" does not show directories. I 
understand that this is easier to implement, but from the user point of view it 
resulted in a "wtf" from me running "git ls" in a repository containing 
essentially directories, and seeing just a README file in the output.

Ideally (for me), directories should be shown with a trailing / like "ls -F"
