Sure, but your proposal has a significant negative side-effect, and it's
your responsibility as the proposer, not other developers', to address it.
Fortunately, access to parameters goes through a single API in Bugzilla,
so an aliases implementation would be pretty easy to implement.
Alternately, you could make your modifications via a script instead of
manually (which is probably easier anyway), then we could distribute
your script to modified installations to update their code with.
But I think aliases is a much better approach, and easily done to boot.
If you were willing to do this minimal extra work, I'd support your
efforts, and I suspect most other developers would too, or at least they
wouldn't object to it. Would you be willing to do this?
