      forgive me for not paying enough attention to earlier discussions but
      I seem to not know how to test this -- pray tell, what filetype would
      a buffer want to be in order to take advantage of this colorscheme, or
      I should probably call it a syntax

      say for example I had a buffer created via

      setlocal noswapfile
      setlocal buftype=nofile
      setlocal bufhidden=hide
      r!ls -algG --group-directories-first

      I've got a home grown [much simplified] version of netrw that would be
      a lot sexier if I could color it up with a set ft=? command

      I tried dir, directory, and netrw -- only netrw made any difference,
      but it didn't recognize the executables as such, just the symlinks

      or do I misunderstand what dircolors syntax is for?
