Another option is to make git recognize program name g<something> and
auto map it to the alias <something>. For example, the symlink "gls"
will be executed as "git ls" (and the alias version is preferred over
the builtin one). Of course you can't have alias "it" because "git" is
already taken. It works for many cases, it's faster to type, and it
does not break current scripts.
