I'd expect the opposite, actually.  Sure, you'd have to do a "grep */*.c"
instead of "grep *.c" when you're looking for something, but that's not that
much harder, is it?  The only impact I'd expect is that "ls" output would be
easier to swallow visually, and *maybe* a better way to support other protocols
if we desire.
