Sorry for top-posting -- challenged reader.

Perhaps a future addition as \L ?

This command doesn't seem to be used and could be documented as being subject to permissions and slower.

I actually would find this useful, but there are other ways of getting it. But having the option would be nice sometimes IMHO.

[I've been testing 8.3beta1 with no issues and have just installed the beta2 release, hence I've been lurking on this list. No errors other than self-inflicted ones.]

I've seen no argument made why \l should print this info at all.
