Ok, normally I use a command like

du -h --max-depth=1 --block-size=1 *

to list which directories occupy how much space.
However the resulting list could be more human readable if the directory entries
are indented according to their level. I would appreciate a listing form like

300000 \root
10000 \etc
200000 \usr
80000 \home
20000 \name1
50000 \name2
10000 \name3
10000 \var

Of cause the listing above is not complete for a Linux system but it should only show
what I mean with "indenting".

Does should a "du" command line command beautifier exist ?

Pay attention to the fact that the size values are right justified in the column!
