Yes, that's what I mean.

I suppose the same format that's used for -l would work for -U but that 
may be confusing (because -l and -U specify a different type of 
directory). For my purposes, assuming that user-log directories take the 
same format as the main log-directory would work (I have a small number 
of large log-directories), but that's probably not the most used

It would be fine for my use, yes.
