Cool sftp ls command, short listing vs long listing


Ok when I sftp from an old version of solaris 9 and I run an "ls" I get the following:

Code:
sftp > ls
drwxr-xr-x   16 fnowicki users        3304 Feb  4 12:02 .
drwxr-xr-x   14 root     root          424 Sep  5 09:17 ..

When I run it from a new version of sftp, i.e. "csw" I get
Code:

it doesn't look like it's configurable, why not just explicitly use ls -l?

Looking around I can't see any way at all to change that, I can't see any reference to any form of customization of those commands. maybe learn for next time to specify options explicitly ;-)
