That means you can't have ls sort in a different order though (as
defined by native language) without messing up the "hidden" files.

IMHO, it seems that ls should (perhaps with a special option which can
be aliased to be the default) treat files with a leading . as special,
and put these before the other files. After all, the leading . is not
defined by the language being used, rather it is a hack used by many
user level programs that consider the file a "hidden" file.
