Creating scripts in ~/bin/ is just as easy as using the "alias"
builtin, but you'll have far fewer hassles. Using scripts also
encourages you to do more than just aliasing, so you build up a rich
collection of little shell programs that suit your individual working
style much better than the ones they're built on. That surely is what
 the UNIX gods intended for us to do. :-)
