   As Stefan has pointed out defvaralias has a symmetry in its arguments

Looking at the old message, I believe that what Stefan said is that in
defvaralias (unlike in `define-obsolete-variable-alias'), there are no
"old" and "new" variables or "obsolete" and "updated" variables.
(With which I agree.)  But that is not the same as saying that there
is symmetry.  The asymmetry in the relation is that one is the alias,
the other the base variable.
