Issue #6074 has been updated by Marc-Andre Lafortune.

Priority changed from Normal to Low

If that this is your biggest pet peeve, you must really love Ruby!

Just use `alias_method` instead. The `alias` keyword is more general and allows other aliases like global variables; also you don't need to give symbols to `alias`, you can write `alias foo bar`.

Feature #6074: Allow alias arguments to have a comma

This is one my biggest pet peeves with Ruby. I am always typing:

  alias :foo, :bar

And getting a damn syntax error.

Btw, is there a reason why `alias` is a keyword and not a method?
