Does anybody know how to patch os x so that when you make and alias, rather than it saying 'filename alias' you could say, have it be 'filename ∑'

If you want to make an alias of an item on your Mac without the alias having the word “alias” appended to it, you can use the drag method. This technique requires you to create your alias in a different folder than the original item. Click the item you want to make an alias of, and then press the “Command” and “Option” keys simultaneously on the Mac’s keyboard while dragging the item to another location. An alias of the item appears in the location you designated, with the same exact name as the original. If you use the drag method to make an alias in the same folder as the original item, the word “alias” will still be appended to the name of the alias.
