* Package name : dirsum
Description: Dirsum is a command line tool to assist sorting out which
directories in a filesystem contain the most bytes.  It will sort
all of the subdirectories of a selected path according to the total
bytes of all files in them, including recursion through further
subdirectories and mounted partitions.

What does this do that existing tools don't?

$ du -Sk | sort -nr | head -n10

Or, to compare it to something that my users can use too,

You could put that in an alias in /etc/profile.

                                                          what does it
offer over ncdu.

Dissent is patriotic, remember?
