Leading spaces are common, actually

Finder does not ignore spaces. I'm quite glad, because I use the space-prefix trick rather regularly.
I am occasionally annoyed at how GNU ls sorts "A B" between "AA" and "AC" instead of before them:
that's certainly not how my brain sorts.
Finder does however sort numbers like this, which GNU ls does not: 1 2 10
I don't really see what the point of the "human-style" sorting is if it can't even sort numbers. That
seems kind of basic to me.
