I'm not alone, either. I have talked about this with my collegue in PUPA, and 
he agreed with me.

I'd like to know why it is a bad phylosophy. In many systems, aliases are 
often provided for convenience. Look at test and [. Look at true and :. Short 
cuts are also a kind of aliases. I don't see anything wrong with this. "There 
should be only one way to do a thing" is Python's phylosophy, but Perl 
developers wouldn't agree with you.

Of course, "I like it" is not a good reason. But menuentry is too long to 
type. This is good enough for me.
