Just gave this a try, it's actually really nice.

One of my more-commonly used commands is `ls -lStr` (long format, Sort
by last-modified, reverse order so most-recently updated items are at
the bottom).

The equivalent command (when aliasing ls to exa) is `ls -lsmod`.  This
unexpected appearance of lsmod makes me smile.  :D

Thanks Peter!
