 Great.  I have found the report: from 2014-01-04.  ^.^
 This is really not easy for me, so much download.  Only to find
 out it is working that is, in which i am very confident...
 I have seen NetBSD now follows No. 1 regarding context revelation:
   #?1[steffen@essex ]$ alias a=b
   #?0[steffen@essex ]$ alias b='echo c'
   #?0[steffen@essex ]$ a
   #?0[steffen@essex ]$ command -v a
   alias a='b'
   #?0[steffen@essex ]$ command -V a
   a is aliased to `b'
 May i suggest going one step further for this interactive thing,
 e.g., my MUA now shows recursive aliases as necessary:
   #?0!0/NONE[#/var/spool/mail/steffen]? commandalias a b
   #?0!0/NONE[#/var/spool/mail/steffen]? commandalias b echo c
   #?0!0/NONE[#/var/spool/mail/steffen]? ?a
   a -> b -> 'echo c'
 Thank you, and
