The 'alias' functions were defined following the philosophy of
writing VMLISP functions in common lisp rather than changing
the source code to be common lisp. This was the general porting
strategy we used in the past.

Keep in mind that we only need the alias function to perform the
specific task that axiom needs. In general the cover functions are
not even close to being equivalent but they cover the semantics
needed by axiom.

At the present time the code rewrite is removing many of these
functions completely. Bookvol5.pamphlet will not only be common 
lisp but will be ANSi common lisp. The net effect is that files
like vmlisp will go away.
