It is possible for the name of an alias to end with the name of another
alias, in which case the code will incorrectly detect a loop.

We can fix that by adding an extra space between words.

OK.  An extra local variable would not hurt and makes the code
easier to read.

Will queue.

It was there on v2. Which now may be a more reasonable sequence.
