I'm a little curious, how do you remember a couple hundred aliases? I
just took a look, I have 61 but with a quick and generous count I think
I use at most 23 of those even occasionally. Some of the aliases are
really old, like, say an alias to backup my Palm Pilot? Um. I guess I
should really clean up here.

But, I have a global zshrc that has my common settings and functions and
most common aliases too and then a few more in ~/.aliases.zsh which I
source from the main zshrc if it exists.
