Hrm, good point. Maybe `bind` (taking a page from Chip)? Has the
advantage of being extremely short yet unambiguous enough, too.

What bugs me about `aliasing` just by itself is that it could be
referring to so many things. My suggestion was an attempt to fix
that, but evidently did not go so well.
