Hi,

I think it is a frequently requested feature to open files or sub dir =20=

in dired using the same buffer.

perhaps it can be made as a preference in custome-group?

in gnu.emacs.help, Leo suggests that people file a report here or =20
else it'll not happen. So here it is. (i think Leo is a emacs =20
developer. If not, sorry.)
