I don't understand why people "hate" aliases so much. :) For me it's much
simpler/shorter than functions. And the "alias" command (without any
options) output is more compact than "declare -f". Just take a look at some
of my aliases (I have ~150 aliases in total):

alias B='builtin'
alias C='command'
alias D='date'
alias E='export'
alias F='find'
alias G='git'
alias H='history'
alias I='ifconfig'
alias K='killall'
alias L='less'
alias M='LC_ALL=C MANWIDTH=$(( COLUMNS > 120 ? 120 : COLUMNS )) man'
alias N='netstat'
alias O='openssl'
alias P='patch'
alias R='route'
alias T='touch'
alias U='uname'
alias V='echo $BASH_VERSION'
alias W='watch'
alias X='screen -X'
alias Z='reset'
alias a='alias'
alias b='builtin cd -'
alias c='clear'
alias d='diff'
alias e='echo'
alias f='file'
alias g='grep'
alias h='help'
alias i='command info'
alias j='jobs'
alias k='kill'
alias l='ls -l'
alias m='make'
alias n='mount'
alias p='patch'
alias q='exit'
alias r='fc -s'
alias s='screen'
alias t='type'
alias u='umount'
alias v='vim'
alias x='xargs'
alias z='echo "${COLUMNS}x$LINES ${TERM:+($TERM)}"'
