But my aliases are so handy!!! I want them (without having to run an
interactive shell), and Emacs can give them to me, I know it can :)

Another approach I'm considering is parsing my bashrc so that 

 'M-x alias NAME'

will simply issue the command associated with NAME as a shell-command.

Haven't had much experience writing parsers though?  Any tips?
