Re: argument names for define-obsolete-*-alias

    On a related note, I find the arguments for defvaralias and defalias more
    confusing than those for define-obsolete-*-alias.

defalias seems clear to me, but defvaralias is unclear.  For
defvaralias, I suggest the names NEW-ALIAS and BASE-VARIABLE.

If using similar names in defalias would make it clearer to some people,
we could change that too--it costs little to change this.
