#Counteract alias.conf interference:
Alias /icons/ "/home/nordsburg/mailman/icons/"
#Wish could just do
#Unalias /icons/
#but alas, I must hardwire the paths here as there is no Unalias.
#Furthermore, alias.conf could have been nice and made a softer alias,
#which would then tried my icons dir. if the file weren't found in
#its, but maybe there is no such softer alias, for better or worse.

Anyway, there should be a way to say "Unpollute my environment for
this item. Just make it behave like it would originally, whatever that
was." Or maybe you have already thrown away that information. (Or maybe
allowing Unalias in .htaccess would allow security problems.)

Anyway, imagine in bash if one had to do
alias rm=rm or
alias rm=\\rm or
alias rm=/bin/rm or
whatever. Yuck. And one day it is moved to /usr/bin and kaboom.

Anyway, you should show how there already is a simpler way to achieve
Unalias /norfelfeller/ or
Unalias <*> [some way to say Unalias Everything].
P.S., Unalias probably better than UnAlias.
