Mark,

I ran in to the same problem. Here is what I did :

- Renamed the original "ls" to "ls-org". Then renamed colorls to "ls".
I then created a shell alias for "ls" that excutes the switches you
might want.( example - alias ls="ls -GAFT" )
I don't know how safe this is but it's been workin for me for a while. If
anybody know of a reason I shouldn't do this let me know !

I guess you could just create an shell alias for "ls" that uses colorls 
and it's switches. ( example - alias ls="colorls -GAFT)

Good luck....
