Hans suggested cleaning up the texmf-dist/aliases file. The attempted
hyphenation aliases and other context-related entries have caused
trouble and confusion for him and context users.
Also, it seems some of the entries are obsolete; for example,
blackdvi.tex is already installed as both blackdvi.tex and blackdvi.sty
(two real files), so there's no reason for the entry in the aliases
file, as far as I can see. (Ditto colordvi, epsf, rotate.)
Also, some of the so-called "real" files don't actually exist. I've
removed those, since they can't possibly be doing any good:
I guess having the aliases for Y&Y and URW font names is potentially
useful (although I remain a bit skeptical), so I won't yet suggest
removing the file completely.
