Oh, a string is actually taken as an environment variable to alias.  I
guess that does justify the name.  I think we might actually be better
off with the lambda, what do you think?

Again, not a problem introduced by your patch, but "Lisp value to
return" seem pretty inaccurate (if you don't feel like fixing this, it's
okay, I think describing it correctly is somewhat non-trivial).
