`bzr ls` should gain --modified and --added?

Bug Description

I remember some core dev saying that `bzr ls` was to be preferred over
commands like `bzr unknowns`. There are still commands whose functionality
is not covered by `bzr ls`, like `bzr modified`, and `bzr added`.

The idea, as I understood it, was to put filters on existing behavior,
not introduce new behavior. So I think --modified belongs on `status`,
not `ls`.

Actually, I was saying that ls is a better interface for scripting; so
we should extend it to allow more purely interactive-ui style commands
to change their output as desired.
