I am not interested enough to even strongly object to such a change,
because it is not reasonable to react with a "I know!" to the output
of "git co --help", i.e. "'git co' is aliased to 'checkout'", in the
first place. Also some users may find it inconsistent if a single
bareword jumps directly to the manpage and other input shows alias
So,... I do not see a very big plus in the proposed (and then
amended by others in the thread) change, but if the damage to the
code that is necessary to implement it is not too bad, perhaps it is
an OK thing to do. I don't know without seeing the patch.
