Yeah, but there have already been complaints about the change to what dir()
returns for list instances in the context of the 2.2 class/type unification.
I can only suppose there are going to be complaints about other changes
(from other people) if dir() changes in other ways.  That was the main point
of my post.  I probably should have avoided the issue of how verbose the
output might be.
