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
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 :)
