ls -la sort order

I really don't like that 'ls -la' seems to ignore a leading dot when
sorting files for display - eg. in terminal I'll get

I haven't changed any settings yet; I've still got LANG=en_US.utf8

I can fix the problem by aliasing ls to 'LC_COLLATE=C  ls' but that
seems klunky and would only fix ls (and not break anything else).  How
bad of an idea would it be to set
in my .bashrc or is there some other setting to get dot files listed
first, then uppercase, then lowercase?

and I thought character codes 32-126 were the same thing in ascii and
utf8, so why is this happening in the first place?
