->Do others feel that this is a regrettable development in the advance from
->v. 1.2 to v. 2.0?  Or am I missing something elegant?  It was very easy

->than the clumsy $PreRead=StringReplace[#,"vln"->"VeryLongName"]&.

I haven't yet used 2.0, My school just upgraded at the end of last semester,
but I really liked the old version of making aliases. Also I liked the keyboard
shortcuts for nesting (parenthesis, braces, brackets etc.) Is there any way to 
reclaim this stuff, or have I not dug far enough?
