Before everyone starts presenting here that we made some nonsensical
decision when we added shorthands, let me remind us that it was added
to allow us to use packages like "s" (https://github.com/magnars/s.el),
"f" (https://github.com/rejeep/f.el) and other similar ones, which use
"problematic" function names.  We wanted to be able to use packages
which have dependencies of those, while at the same time providing
reasonably-named aliases for them.  (Gerd wasn't around back then, so
he is excused, but the rest of us were here, so please let's not
pretend those discussions never happened.)
