ls tricks for git-annex?

So now that I am using git-annex for almost all of my stuff, I need
to stay sane when using normal tools (which now see symlinks),
mostly /bin/ls -l (which currently makes my eyes bleed until I add -L).

Sure, I could add -L to my existing /bin/ls alias, but I don't
*want* to do that on all symlinks.

I also don't really want to pipe output from /bin/ls through sed or
what-have-you, because that can just get very messy, and breaks
colouring too.

So, what do you do?
