I'd really rather that we didn't. We've already got 'ci', which is
pretty short (I know it's not 'com', and I really do sympathize with
Karl Berry's plight), but I fear that this will open the floodgates for
incrementally including the gazillion other CVS shortcuts available.
Here's the list of CVS commands that have one or more "aliases", and I
really don't want to approach this level of insanity.

CVS commands and their aliases:

"add", "ad", "new"
"admin", "adm", "rcs"
"annotate", "ann"
"checkout", "co", "get"
"commit", "ci", "com"
"diff", "di", "dif"
"export", "exp", "ex"
"history", "hi", "his"
"import", "im", "imp"
"log", "lo"
"login", "logon", "lgn"
"rannotate","rann", "ra"
"rdiff", "patch", "pa"
"release", "re", "rel"
"remove", "rm", "delete"
"rlog", "rl"
"rtag", "rt", "rfreeze"
"status", "st", "stat"
"tag", "ta", "freeze"
"update", "up", "upd"
"version", "ve", "ver"
