Standardize on alias names

Issue #108 new
Anonymous created an issue

Probably more trouble than it is worth, but I would not mind seeing the alias names prepended with a common name that indicates that they are part of actions. For example:

vew-mk vew-ls vew-deactivate vew-rm vew-cp etc..

For people who are first using this or are forgetful like me, it is useful to just type the first few letters of the alias and then hit TAB to see what is available. Also avoids any conflicts with other aliases.

Anyways, thanks for listening and thanks for a great little tool.

    I like the idea, and probably should have done it that way from the start. Another suggestion was to have a single command that takes sub-commands (a la "svn" and "hg").

    One thing to keep in mind, though, is that with a common prefix you have to type more characters before tab-completion will work. vew seems like a reasonable compromise, since all of the letters are typed with one hand. I will have to give this some thought.
