If you followed this list a bit longer you would have seen me (and others) 
state that aliases are a big no-no for a workflow (or task) based UI like 
Darcs uses.
We want to keep the amount of commands to a minimum to make people 
comfortable to look through the list and find the command he likes and 
adding aliases there is thus counter productive.

This is the short version, naturally;  the long version would add 
learnability (aka fear of learning) threory and stuff like "KISS" to the 
conversation.  But those you'll have to look up in the archives :)
