`alias' feature request (Santa part II 1/2)

Couldn't a function, call it `alias', be created?

Some times I want to test an existing script but using different
functions other than the ones that the script call, and I must re-edit
the whole script. If
        alias(old_function/script, new_function/script)
existed, my life would be easier :-)

For exemple, if I want to use my own special `min' and `max', `my_min'
and `my_max', I would just type `alias("min", "my_min")' in the command
line and all scripts would use my misterious "my_min".

Of course, an `unalias("min")' must also exist.


Thanks, Joao
