PV> actulally, with a system command?

also, 'du' works that way for regular files. But implicitly I wanted about ls's
key, thanks a lot guys!

Kind of a very humble unadvertised feature but needed for ages in contrast  from
EA and ACL.

Another interesting thing is that it seems to be supported  by  perl's  stat()
