...except that the aliases are currently not machine-readable. They exist only
as human-readable annotations in a PDF file. Okay, granted, one could write a
PDF-parser, but that's a hell of a lot more difficult than just writing a
plain-text-parser. Therefore, I suggest that the CDLR solution may be a better
one (and it would work for user-interfaces which were /not/ in English too).
