I consider myself a very old RH user, not the oldest but old enough to tried long time ago RH2.
For a long time I got used to the commands and the auto-completion behaviour…so I use alias, but only for macros or very cumbersome commands which need a lot of typing to get the auto-completion deciphering them.
One of my non-aliased commands for long time has been CPlane. I find “CP” short enough to work as a pseudo-alias and the several combinations of “CP W T”, etc, clear enough to be used without any problem. One of those combinations has been for a long time “CP i” that was assigned to “CPlane 3Point”…
Someone (rise your hand, don’t be shy :P) during RH6 development thought that changing the i for a p makes a lot of sense…and it makes…but, in this time of transition has become a major pain in the ass for me, currently moving between both versions and used to the old CPlane command behaviour.
I suppose that this will remain in this way and is ok, but please, consider for the next version this kind of changes as very annoying changes if they are not very justified…in this case I can imagine that the reason behind this change are possible new comers crashing (as happened to me in the pass) with the non-sense of “i” as the shortcut for 3points. Please, balance the new adopters versus long time and old loyal users experience
