How FreeBSD's ls(1) behaves:
bin/ etc/ mnt/ root/ usr/
boot/ lib/ net/ sbin/ var/
COPYRIGHT libexec/ proc/ sys
dev/ media/ rescue/ tmp/
How it should (GNU ls):
bin/ etc/ media/ proc/ sbin/ var/
boot/ lib/ mnt/ rescue/ tmp/ COPYRIGHT
dev/ libexec/ net/ root/ usr/ sys
Please, for heaven's sake, no. Please do not turn us into Linux.
We separate columns with tabs rather than minimal spaces. Not sure it matters one way or the other. I don't understand why Mark has a strong opinion about it, but I also see no reason for the change.

The sort order. Please, no.
If people really want this let's get a gls port going.

Hm, sort order looks more like a directory-first affect (see reporter's next PR) than a column width thing.
We've got a gls port — it's part of "coreutils."
