And which is preferred since you then know that you haven't messed with
the system's standard command which might be needed by other programs
with any particular flags.

Also, what also works is putting ~/bin as the first path statement in
your PATH and cp colorls to ~/bin/ls and when you type ls it will us the
first ls it can find, which is based in ~/bin
