If we keep all the "other" alternatives away in hidden files, how about
the active one as well (e.g. .Alternative0... -> programA/...,
.Alternative1 -> programB/, .Alternative2 -> programC/)?  What about
when I manually link /System/Executables/sh to /Programs/Dash/.../dash,
overwriting the link to bash?  Or is such a "full listing" too easy to
become inconsistent?(hmm, no more likely that the all-but-one listing is
likely to, I guess, if manual changes to the real symlink don't matter)
