As far as I understand nothing will change, except which of the two (move 
and mv) is the main command and which is the alias.

Now if the alias would dissapear or would be replaced by a stub that only 
directs you to use the main command, then it would make a difference and 
people may object. But as presented, the change is transparent to the end
