Yes!  My distro insists on aliasing ls to the color form.  I dislike it, 
partially because there's no place that tells me just what the various 
colors mean.  I used to have to chase through script after script to 
find out just where to change it, only to have it changed back when I 
upgraded to the next distro version.  Then it hit me, and I added this 
to the bottom of ~/.bashrc:

alias ls=ls

because that overrides anything done earlier in a way that's not going 
to be munched by an upgrade in a rather elegant way.
