(Actually, I probably mean something more than a simple alias, the more I 
think about it - more a script to handle the lookup aspect of the argument 
passed to 'install'). 

If you need the remining syntax options, you want to go beyond the 'install' 
syntax anyway - just as on Windows if you want to install something using 
unusual options you can't use the standard installers.  

Few people do, in the end: and using urpmi since installing Mandriva 2006 I've 
not used any unusual arguments.
