Neat! chooser must know lar anyway.

I'd like to avoid the sorting subdir however. Sorting can be
accomplished just as easily by implementations in chooser:

* larball file order (use lar to reorder files)
* filename (with option to strip leading [0-9_] characters)
* file size
* execution frequency (needs counter in flash)
