    I think that as long as there is no existing alternative, it makes no
    sense to provide aliases.  And we're talking about 30 autoloaded functions.

The purpose of this change is to get rid of one case where users have
to say, "What did they call that?"  If the command to encrypt a file
is called `epa-mail-encrypt, "epa" is a gratuitous memory obstacle.
If it is `crypt-encrypt-message' or `encrypt-message'.

Let's make Emacs easier for people to learn by cleaning up these
unnecessary rough spots.
