I've been thinking about this. I think that I like seeing those
entries, as a visual reminder that I really am seeing the complete
list of files in that directory, and therefore that it really is
empty. When it comes to counting the entries in the directory
listing, I already account for these, but I still like seeing them.
However, I can see that others might not feel the same way. If
you can recommend a patch that would make your preferred behaviour
optional, I'd incorporate that.

Hmm. I'd like to find a way to virtualize this sort of thing.
I'll have to give this some thought.
But definitely a good idea.
