Can we lose the "unad" "shortcut" ?? That one is kinda dumb. Gee... save a
letter.

Personally, I don't see a reason for propagating CVS' notion of having a
shortcut for every darned subcommand. "rm" and "mv" ... okay. "co" and "ci"
are from RCS days... maybe. But things like "df" and "di" for diff? Oy. And
"unad" for "unadd"?? That takes the cake :-) Ah... I see how that came
about... lose the "ad" for "add" too :-)

I'd like to advocate being *much* more restrictive with the aliases for
subcommands. We could/should probably lose half of the aliases we have
defined right now.

Cheers,
